A new mom might know what to do when the baby is crying incessantly. The mom might not also know the reason. When your otherwise healthy baby who is normal during the day, but suddenly starts crying in the evening. And, if you noticed signs like your baby stiffen his/her body, clench their fists and pull the legs against the stomach, your baby might have constipation.
Why Does it happen?
About 1 in every 5 babies may have suffered from constipation, colic or other tummy related problems at some point. It remains a particularly frustrating problem for parents and caregivers because it is difficult to treat and may result in significant stress for the family. One commonly held view is that colic could be due to an imbalance between the many bacteria that are normally present in the gut (stomach). There may be an excess of gas forming bacteria in some babies due to the immaturity of their digestive system.
Your baby ’s gastrointestinal tract is populated by millions of bacteria soon after birth. There has been some research around the concept that perhaps changing the bacterial flora may have a positive effect in reducing stomach problems like constipation & colic.
Is there a healthy way to deal with this problem?
Yes, there is. Scientific research has found that healthy gut flora is a key factor in helping your baby’s digestive system develop and adapt to its new challenges. Colicky babies are shown to have a less healthy gut flora composition. Therefore, by encouraging the development of healthy gut flora in your baby you can help alleviate the symptoms of colic. For advice regarding colic and excessive crying, never hesitate to consult your paediatrician
or health care professional.
What Is L.reuteri?
L.reuteri (Lactobacillus reuteri) is a healthy probiotic culture naturally occurring in breast milk, which has been found to be especially effective in reducing crying and colic. It promotes the development of healthy gut flora, which supports the maturation and adaptation process of the digestive system.
