We believe colic is the result of immature gut. Babies are born without digestive bacteria and this takes time to develop. Undigested milk ferments and forms gas which gets trapped in the lower bowel and causes cramping pain as the baby tries to squeeze the gas out.

40% of babies will suffer colic symptoms in their first weeks of life and this goes up to 70% after a Caesar birth where the lack of fluid exchange in the birth canal and the use of antibiotics also compromise digestive development.
