Why we believe your baby needs probiotics:
Essentially we believe colic is the result of immature gut and many babies are slow to build their Microbiome which is the
bacterial community that lives in and on their bodies. It is crucial to have high levels of beneficial bacteria for this
community to function effectively and digest milk protein effectively to cut down on wind production.
Breastfeeding provides essential nutrients for growth and specific probiotic bacterial strains essential for healthy digestion, immune
system development and neurodevelopment. In some mums the breastmilk probiotic levels can be compromised by the use of
antibiotics during pregnancy, birth and lactation. This could be why up to 70% of Caesar babies may develop colic symptoms.
We recommend the use of Qiara – a unique probiotic containing Lactobacillus Fermentum CECT5716 which is isolated from
human breast milk. Qiara enhances the development of an immature gut thus eliminating one of the major causes if
colic in babies plus it has been proven to reduce overall infant infections by 30%, hence most babies using Qiara will require less bottles of Willby’s Colic Mix.
Qiara comes in two forms:
Qiara Pregnancy and Breastfeeding which is taken by mums in pregnancy and during lactation to suppress the bacteria that causes mastitis
and also inhibits the development of Staphylococcus and Clostridia. Taken for the first 12 months of breastfeeding, it
helps to lay the foundations for healthy infant development, digestive function and nervous system and immune
function. It is particularly important for breastfeeding mums to take this after a caesarian birth.
Qiara Infant is designed for supplementation of bottle fed babies who do not receive direct probiotics contained in
breast milk. It serves the same purpose as Adult Qiara but is given directly to the baby via bottle feeding. It can also
be given to breastfed colicky babies to hasten the maturity of the digestive system.
