Baby Colic

Recommendation (may take few days for effect)

If baby is formula-fed then switch to a non-dairy alternative (see your Dr first)

If baby is breast-fed then the mother can try eliminating dairy from her diet

Note: please also see the reference link below for further tips/advice that may help.

Results: studies indicate a significant improvement in up to 68% of cases.

How it works: a common cause of colic is thought to be an intolerance to cow’s milk proteins hence this aims to alleviate gastro-intestinal discomfort. Even breast-feeding mothers (who consume dairy products) may pass cow’s milk proteins through to her breast-fed baby hence the mother avoiding dairy is mentioned.
