babies colic

Greetings Walt!
Several years ago I recall reading your post about babies with colic needing some acidophilus. A friend of mine has a 5 week old, and would like your advice on how much to give the infant.
The child is on Enfamil.
I assume you recommend a change to a non dairy formula. Any one you prefer??
Thank you.
PS My son, my husband, and myself are doing very well. Thanks to you, we have almost no allergy problems, and can eat just about anything (except dairy). We still swear by the whole foods diet. Namaste! Sue

Thanks, Sue.

The total elimination of dairy MAY be necessary. If this infant were mine, I would go to a soy formula and also start the product by Metagenics OR Klair labs (Find them in the freezer at your health food store.) that has at least 6 Billion organisms per dose, and use the acidophilus one day and the acidbifidus the next. Once the colic has been cleared up for a week, cut out the soy formula and see if it returns. If it does, restart it and THEN, when it is settled down again, give up the bacterial supplement.

This way, the actual cause can be determined.

Let us know what she learns.

Walt
