Baby has colic

Baby is especially likely to suffer from this during the first few months. Signs of colic include frequent crying, a swollen tummy and gas. During the episode, baby will go red, curl up and squirm in pain, which can be quite distressing for the parents. But this is not in fact dangerous and baby will soon feel cheerful again when the episode is over.
The main cause of colic is the immaturity of the digestive tract, as well as too much air being swallowed during meals.
To soothe them, rub their tummy and comfort them.
To avoid colic, keep them in a vertical position while breastfeeding or giving them their bottle.
If you have any doubts or concerns, ask your doctor, who will offer you advice and prescribe specially adapted milk if necessary.

Breast milk is the ideal nutrition for your baby. It naturally contains everything your baby needs to grow.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends feeding your baby exclusively with breast milk up to the age of 6 months. France Lait Laboratory supports this recommendation & therefore prohibits all communication on infant formulas (0-6 months).
