COLIC FEAR



I think every parent has heard about it and hoped...that it never happens 🙏🏼😆 For those of you who are still wondering what I'm talking about... Colic is a condition diagnosed simply by intense bouts of excessive crying that last for hours. It typically starts when babies are around three months old and ends when they reach 3-4 months.👶🏼




WHAT'S THE CAUSE?

The cause of colic is still not well understood. However, some claim that it is because of:

  • neurological immaturity

  • acclimation to the world outside the womb

  • sensitivity to stimulation

  • food allergy etc.


Don't worry. There is still hope ;)...


What I want you to know is: WE NOW HAVE A SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE!


A new study provides the most comprehensive evidence yet that a probiotic called Lactobacillus reuteri (which is already sold as relief for babies with colic) is an EFFECTIVE treatment.


What is your experience? Would you like to know more..?
