Could Baby's Tummy Bacteria Help Spur Colic?
Date:1/14/2013

ause invasive infections generally, but sometimes they do. And, since colic does eventually go away on its own, the risk of potentially doing harm seems too high," he said.

But, Hobaugh said if a mother is breast-feeding, adding yogurt, which contains beneficial bacteria, to her diet would be OK. He added that he wasn't sure if it would help, though.

For his part, Belamarich advised parents to work closely with their babies' pediatrician to come up with a plan for dealing with colic. He said the first thing that needs to be done is to make sure the baby is healthy and thriving. Once you know for sure it's colic, he said the good news is that the condition hasn't been associated with any long-term problems.

He said that before parents give their babies any new foods or medicines, they should check with their child's pediatrician first.

"There are a lot of things that are difficult to treat that are targets for miracle cures. Colic is one of them. Parents should be aware that there's no miracle cure for colic," Belamarich said.

Hobaugh said that swaddling your baby can help, and suggested that parents sleep when the baby sleeps.

His final piece of advice? "Hang in there. It will get better."
