Regurgitation, infantile colic and functional constipation are common functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs) during infancy. The FGIDs and their symptoms are often extremely distressing for the infant and parents, leading to a cascade of infant discomfort and crying, parental anxiety, repeated healthcare consultations and escalating healthcare costs.

By providing complete and updated parental education, reassurance and nutritional advice, healthcare professionals can optimise the management of FGIDs and related symptoms.1
