Colicky babies more likely to develop health problems, study finds

Colic can be a terrible thing for an infant and parents to deal with but a new French study finds colic could lead to other health problems for kids later on.

Researchers studied 200 children and found 70 percent of those who were diagnosed with migraines also had colic as infants.

That's compared to just 26 percent of kids without migraines.

The researchers also found children with parents who suffer from migraines are more likely to develop colic.

Doctors say parents who have children with severe colic should head to the pediatrician to rule out migraines.
