Colic is when your baby cries excessively without any apparent reason. As a mom, you might feel helpless when you find baby crying excessively without any apparent reason. Colic can be an uncomfortable experience for both baby and parents.



What is colic and why does it happen?



Colic is when discomfort and pain arise in the baby’s stomach. It is most common in the first 2 months and begins to improve by 4 months. About every 1 in 5 babies may have suffered from colic 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. No one really knows the exact cause of colic



Can colic be prevented?



Research has found out the L.reuteri, the probiotic can help prevent and manage colic in babies.  L.reuteri is a probiotic scientifically proven to help prevent and provides relief to your baby from different tummy problems including colic.

Dr. Shipra Mathur
hi, teething related motions may take time to improve - these are usually mild , not very watery ones . Apart from zinc, probiotics also help - check with your doctor as it may be a part of the zinc drops/syrup anyway. If large and frequent motions still, get her reviewed by your doctor. The diet that you are giving is absolutely fine. Take care, 2019-03-28 15:19:30

Hi Urvashi, colic crying is uncontrollable crying without an obvious reason babies 2 months of age onwards. It s due to the immaturity of their digestion processes. Probiotics are 'healthy bacteris', like L reuteri , that can help especially in breast fed babies. It is naturally found in breast milk too and helps to mantain a conducive bacterial flora in the gut. 2019-03-28 15:25:27

HI Nayeema, in addition to what you are already giving, you may start egg/chicken soup if you eat non veg . More vegetables can be introduced , paranthas, citrus fruits , milk shakes and whatever is appropriate from the family meal. By 1 year , she /he should be able to eat the same food as the rest of the family. Hope that helps. 2019-03-28 15:37:06

hi Pehu, colic usually settles by 5-6 months of age. Until then if the episodes are severe, make sure you burp the baby well and sometimes carrying around/distraction helps. There are also probiotics that help to promote digestion - such as L leuteri - please check with your paediatrician about their need and availability. 2019-03-28 15:51:50

Dr. Shipra Mathur
HI Puloma, colic is due to immaturity of digestion and presents as uncontrollable crying. whereas acid reflux is due to the back flow of acid from the stomach - causes more of a discomfort etc than excessive crying. They may coexist though. L Reuteri is a probiotic or a culture of healthy bacteria that is supposed to help in reducing colic by changing and adapting the gut flora for better digestion. 2019-03-28 16:00:58
