Colicky Babies May Have Trouble Digesting Juice

Thursday, 30 October 2008 13:28

This study found that so-called "colicky" infants were more likely to suffer from gas and sleep problems after drinking apple juice, which contains high concentrations of the sugars sorbitol and fructose. Additionally, infants with these digestive difficulties were more likely to have tried fruit juice at an earlier age than other babies who had no digestive problems
