Probiotic strain L. Reuteri DSM 17938
Studies have shown that infants who suffer from colic have a different intestinal microflora than babies who do not suffer from colic. Probiotics (in particular the so-called Lactobacillus reuteri) have helped reduce the symptoms of colic in some of these babies.
Talk to your child’s doctor about this option and ask for recommendations.
Intestinal flora plays an important role in childhood colic. Several studies have shown less bifidobacteria and lactobacilli in childhood colic while both Escherichia, Klebsiella, Serratia, Vibrio, Yersinia y Pseudomonas are more prominent in the colon.
When given once daily, it appears to have scientific evidence in the treatment of infant colic, without significant side effects.
Recommendations and Warnings
All Remedies / Natural Treatments can be combined with each other, because what works with one baby, may not work with another, so there is more chance of calming the baby.
We recommend to be well documented previously and / or advised by the specialists in the application of the natural treatments.
Very Important: Have a specialist examine your baby to make sure there is no underlying medical condition or food problem that causes that state of agitation (intense crying and / or movement).
