Colic is defined as uncontrollable crying in otherwise healthy and well-fed babies that begins within the first three weeks of life, lasts at least three hours per day, happens at least three times a week for at least three weeks.
While no one knows exactly what causes colic there is strong research to suggest that colic is caused by an imbalance of healthy bacteria in baby’s digestive tract. In addition to the traditional colic remedies including massage, gentle rocking, gripe water and swaddling, probiotics may be effective in treating colic in babies.
Probiotics, like Mommy’s Bliss’ baby probiotic drops, are natural microorganisms similar to those found in healthy digestive tracts. By adding them to baby’s routine you could help to build up good bacteria in the gut leading to less tummy troubles like gas and colic.
