Yesterday, in the mother group, a novice mother said that her child was just two months old, and she cried every day. It may be intestinal colic.This mother consulted whether everyone has a good way.Another enthusiastic mother replied: Eat probiotics, my baby eats probiotics, and intestinal colic is just fine, and I don’t cry very much.As soon as she cried, I fed probiotics, which was very effective!
Is this mother said right?Can probiotics really alleviate infant embryoscopy?Today we will talk about baby probiotics.
When it comes to baby probiotics, you must first understand what is probiotics.Probiotics are living microorganisms living in our body, which can bring benefits to health.In fact, our body has billions of microorganisms, including good bacteria, bad bacteria, viruses and fungi.Probiotics are beneficial bacteria and yeast, which can balance the pathogenic bacteria in the human body.
Probiotics exist in fermented foods, such as yogurt, Cumpa, sauerkraut and Kaifel.They can also be used in the form of supplements or creams.Some baby formula milk powder even contains added probiotics.
The most common probiotics are bacteria of lactobacillus and bisidobacteria.They each have their own unique health benefits.Other strains can also be regarded as probiotics, and yeast can also be used as probiotics.The exact meaning of infant probiotics is that they are safe and specialized probiotics for infants!
Some mothers eat probiotics for newborns to regulate the stomach and alleviate the baby’s intestinal colic, but can they really work?
The well -known British newspaper "Daily Mail" published a report on April 2, 2014, confirming: "Probiotics will not alleviate baby colic."
The study was jointly conducted by Royal Children’s Hospital, the Murdoch Institute and the University of Melbourne, as well as researchers at the University of Melbourne, and the Canadian Institute of Children and Family Institute.The results of the study show that probiotics, which are usually called "friendly bacteria", actually worsen intestinal colic symptoms.

The research surveyed 167 babies with colic. Researchers took probiotics for them every day, and then observed whether the symptoms improved.As a result, the researchers found that this treatment did not play a role in eased intestinal colic.
The person in charge of the project, Dr. Malenistan, a pediatrician, is the question of whether the probiotic can treat the baby’s intestinal colic that shows that "probiotics will not completely eliminate neonatal bowel colic, but it will reduce the time of baby crying." And confirmed: intestinal colicThere is no serious threat to the health of babies.Parents do not need to take probiotics for their babies to alleviate the intestinal colic of the newborn.
As for the reason why the newborn crying time is shortened after taking probiotics, we will give an explanation below.
In this case, do babies need to take probiotics?
Because infant probiotics increase the number of beneficial bacteria in the body, they do have a positive impact on the overall health, which is particularly helpful for the following aspects:
1. Promote the balance of bacteria in the body
When pregnant women are pregnant, amniotic fluid is not a sterile environment. This is also the first time that the fetus has exposed to bacteria. In an ideal environment, mothers can pass a large intestinal flora to baby.But scientists believe that in the past century, we have been affected by antibiotics, genetically modified organisms, sugar/starch, and many processing foods. All of this will degenerate the intestinal flora passed to the baby.
2. Gastrointestinal problem
If intestinal bacteria do not have a balance, babies may have colic, gastric acid backflow, constipation, diarrhea, or more severe digestive system diseases.The well -known medical magazine "Liu Ye Dao" published a study found that adult feces transplantation (putting some "healthy" stools into the colon of unhealthy people) was cured by 91.93 % of patients with difficultylobia.This shows that a good intestinal flora can treat and prevent digestion problems.This theory is also applicable to infants: probiotics are conducive to baby’s gastrointestinal digestion.
3. Immune system problem
Abnormal intestinal flora can cause abnormal immune system function.If intestinal bacteria are not the most ideal state (the number of bacteria, quality, and the proportion of various bacteria), the baby’s immune system will not be the most ideal.This means that babies will be more likely to have a cold, flu and other diseases.We can avoid some of these problems by using probiotics for infants.
4. It is conducive to the baby’s mood happy
A study by a Royal New Zealand scientific research institution found that after taking probiotics, the crying time was shorter, and it was easier to smile at the people around.
In fact, it is not difficult to understand the truth. We know that there are already a lot of data to support the intestinal connection.The human body has serotonin (a hormone that feels good) and dopamine (a neurotransmitter that helps to regulate the heart center of the brain).Some probiotic species can reduce anxiety and depression, increase the generation of dopamine and 5-hydroxylidin, and reduce stress anxiety, depression and cognitive dysfunction.
5. Adjust baby weight
Infant probiotics can affect the baby’s weight.This may sound strange, but a study found that mice that suffer from TLR5 deficiency (a protein that keeps the intestinal flora balanced) increased too much weight.Subsequently, the researchers transplanted some feces from ultra -heavy mice to thin mice. Slimming mice began to eat more, gain weight, and eventually appeared the same metabolic problems with mice with TLR5 deficiency mice.All in all, the weight and metabolic problems of these mice are excessive result of bad intestinal bacteria and the direct result of lack of probiotics.
6. Reduce the skin of the newborn
Some experts published an article published in the "British Medical Journal" showing that the skin problems of infants (such as infant eczema and infant acne) are caused by the imbalance of intestinal bacteria: supplementing mouse libulius lactobacterium, Piccinobacteria, mammamidiae in pregnant women and lactationA long bisidobacterium can significantly reduce the risk of infants to suffer from eczema.
Another study found that the lack of intestinal probiotics of the newborn can also lead to a reduction in the ability of the skin as a protective organs, and it is more likely to be affected by inflammation and infection.
Researchers at the School of Chemistry and Molecular Biological Sciences at the University of Queensland, Australia, have found that the most suitable probiotics for infants should include 2-3 strains and a variety of probiotics.The following are two types of infant experts suggest that the probiotics that should be supplemented should be supplemented.
Bisidobacterium is the earliest strain breeding in the infant intestine. Compared with other strains, it can better adhere to the intestinal wall.It is an important bacteria that promote intestinal digestion and nutritional absorption.It may help improve the skin condition of the baby, such as preventing the skin from being damaged by infant eczema and yeast infection.It may also help solve the digestive problems of babies, such as constipation and diarrhea.
2. Royci Linemapus
Roy’s lactobacillus has many benefits to young children and babies.A study found that children aged between 6 months and 3 years old, taking Royciobacteria can reduce the case of infant diarrhea by nearly one -third, and the respiratory infection cases are reduced by half.Another study shows that Rochemacteria is an excellent method for treating colic. In addition to the above effect, Royci is also found to reduce the level of bacteria that can cause tooth decay.
After understanding the types of baby probiotics and some probiotics, what should I do to help children supplement probiotics?Before supplementing probiotics for infants, you must conduct professional consultation and exchanges with pediatricians.
1. Give infant liquid probiotics
According to the dosage suggestions on specific products, liquid probiotics are added to a small amount of breast milk or formula milk.Or use a syringe to put the liquid probiotic directly into the baby’s mouth.Do not combine the liquid probiotics with water as much as possible to let the child take it, because drinking too much water may destroy the child’s electrolyte balance.
2. Apply or mixed probiotics for children to take
Parents can put the pink probiotic directly on the mother’s chest before feeding, so that the child can add enough probiotics while eating milk.When a baby eats solid food, mix probiotic powder into the baby’s water cup or food.
It should be noted that taking probiotics for the baby must be slow and pay attention to observing the changes in the infant intestine.
In addition to probiotic supplements, babies can also ingest probiotics from the following foods, and they are safer and healthier.
Breastfeeding is the best way to keep the baby’s intestinal wall complete and healthy.Breast milk will provide babies with probiotics and immunoglobulin A (IgA), which will help seal the intestinal wall.In order to obtain the greatest benefit, please eat fermented food rich in probiotics, such as yogurt.This will help the mother’s own bacterial balance and increase the number of probiotics in the baby.Probiotics can improve the long -term health of the baby.
2. Breast milk and yogurt
If the mother cannot or does not want to breastfeed, she can keep the infant intestinal health through some formulas.Food is the best way to increase the beneficial bacteria in children, especially for children who grow and develop.We have to wait until 6 months old to provide a real supplementary food for the baby, but before that, we can make breast milk yogurt for the baby.
What is breasts and yogurt?Mix the breast milk with the baby probiotics, mix the mixing and keep it for a period of time, and then fed it to the baby.This is the practice of breastfeeding yogurt.Of course, before giving your child, please consult the pediatrician first.
3, fermented food
When the baby can eat supplementary food, the mother can add natural fermented food to her diet.Feeding them as soon as possible can help babies get used to the taste of fermented food.Start with probiotic juice, such as sauerkraut juice or kimchi juice.Use a spoon or mix them into mud for children.After the baby is used to supplementary food, you can add a small amount of Kaifel or Yogurt, and then gradually introduce other fermented foods, and finally let your baby love all fermented foods.
Probiotics are not supervised by relevant national medical institutions. Therefore, when taking supplementary probiotics for babies, please be careful and consult a doctor first.
Generally speaking, probiotics have almost no side effects on healthy adults and children, but those babies with weak immune systems, healthy problems or premature birth may cause adverse reactions to probiotics.
Once again: babies need special care.Before taking any supplements for babies, you should consult the doctor first. You must not blindly feed your baby probiotics, especially before adding complementary foods.
