Abstract

Abdominal pain in babies is a common complaint for which parents seek medical advice at the pharmacy. Almost all babies experience pain in the abdomen at one point or another. Most of the time, it is self-limiting and is not caused by a serious medical problem. Although many different conditions cause abdominal pain in babies, it is important to identify the need for referral to the doctor for further investigation.
