Probiotics for Infantile Colic

Colic is a common problem noted in infants in the first 3 months. Studies show that it affects as many as 1/3 of babies. Yet, despite research, there is still no known cause.

For H, her colicky symptoms decreased markedly when I eliminated some key foods from my diet. I believe that for her, colic was the first sign of food allergies.

I have heard of using probiotics in infants with colic and acid reflux but have no personal experience with it. A friend of mine shared this article with me. It discusses the use of probiotics in breastfed infants that show signs of colic. After 28 days the infants receiving probiotics cried significantly less than those receiving only simethocone. Very interesting!
