Question: At the time of giving birth to my new baby I had to have antibiotics for a high temperature. I was told that the antibiotics wouldn't pass to my baby through my breast milk but I am unsure as he seems very colicky, irritable and upset with his digestion. I thought colic didn't start until around 3 weeks and he is only 1 week old?

Important tips if your baby was premature

Disclaimer: Osteopaths are not allowed to say they can “treat” specific baby conditions, such as colic because basically no paid for research has been done showing it can help. What we actually have is 1000’s of parents spreading the word that their baby has benefitted in some way. I want to make it clear that a cranial osteopathy treatment looks at the baby as a whole, not as treating a “colic baby” or “reflux baby” anyway. Having said this probiotics have scientifically been studied to ease colic, so in this instance it would formally allowed for me to say that probiotics help colic. I use probiotics very often within my holistic approach to helping babies.
