Friendly Bacteria Help Colicky Babies

New research has revealed that a daily dose of probiotics (also known as friendly bacteria) may help colicky babies cry less. After three weeks of treatment with probiotic bacteria, babies cried for an average of about half an hour a day Рdown from five or six hours at the outset of the study. This compared favourably with the babies who were given a placebo who were still crying for an hour and a half daily after the same amount of time
