Does a C-Section Cause Colic

It’s quite well known that a C-section predisposes a baby to having colic as they don’t pick up the beneficial bacteria from the vaginal canal. However, I personally think that the antibiotics given at the C-section have more of an impact so please watch the antibiotics videos I have made. And the probiotics videos to find out how to help your baby!

However, C-section babies can also be grumpy for a variety or reasons, have a watch of my video to learn more.

There is also a specific PLANNED C-section video so watch that if you had a planned section.

This is one video of over 100 videos in my online colic solution and baby health series available here: Calming Colic Online Solution

Do Antibiotics Cause colic?

How I use Optibac probiotics to help upset babies


Video transcript:


This is in the baby birth biotype section and it’s about c-sections and there’s already um a video on here about planned c-section babies. And they are actually a bit different from a sort of normal c-section delivery because um a normal c-section, if you can call it that, is usually an emergency c-section. So the delivery has gone on and on and on and hasn’t gone according to plan and then you have to have the emergency c-section. Whereas a plan c-section uh no delivery at all. You know, mom probably goes in fairly relaxed because it’s all nice and planned.


So there’s a slight difference. So what we have with the c-section baby is you can have like a combo of the meerkat baby because they’ve got been down and stuck and stayed like that for a long time. Then, it’s been decided to have the emergency c-section and then they’ve been taken out as a c-section so their legs can still be quite froggy. So read the meerkat section and the little frog section because um c-section babies can be a combo of both.


Okay, so c-section babies they’re kind of top five babies to have colic or even reflux or wind so all of these trigger factors so um that change the gut bacteria in the baby happens quite a lot with c-section babies. 

So, one, as you may well know this is getting more and more commonly known that c-section baby doesn’t pick up the bacteria from mom through the vaginal canal when they have the natural delivery. So, they come out the top and they can actually pick up more bacteria from the skin. So this is one reason because we’re always talking about the change in gut bacteria which is a trigger for wind and colic. So, one of these babies miss out on that bacteria.


Two, you get antibiotics at the c-section because it’s surgery in the hospital so you will have the prophylactic antibiotics to keep you safe. Now, lots of moms don’t know this. Sometimes the dad knows it. The dad’s been told or mom and dad have been told but mom can’t remember because she’s um giving birth to a baby and sometimes they’re not told at all. She would have had antibiotics as well. 


This is my opinion. Now, lots of pressures you know like you’ve had c-section oh and because of that then the gut bacteria is different and it can predispose to colic and eczema and asthma and other allergies. In my opinion, the antibiotics do as much change to the gut bacteria as the c-section because I see babies that have had a vaginal delivery and then antibiotics at another day. All the moms had antibiotics breastfeeding through and they are just as upset with tummy upset and colic and possibly starting to get a milk protein allergy or something like that. 


So, that’s in my opinion. That’s why I think that the antibiotics are just as strong as the c-section.


Okay, this I must get across as well. Because you are watching this video, you are now going to get the proactive advice to hopefully cancel out the fact you’ve had c-section antibiotics and that is again to use the probiotics. Put the good bacteria back in again because that’s the main thing, the main disruptor that triggers colic, and eczema, and asthma and allergies so you put it back in. When they’re young, you’ve got a window there, a bigger window of opportunity to get that good stuff back into the baby and sort them out. If you’re watching this later on doesn’t matter, still get it in there. I see the probiotics help across all ages, older children as well. I use them uh six seven eight you know um adults you know we use them the whole time and they’re very very effective. So this is the summary of a c-section baby birth type. They can be they can be stiff here and they can have legs up in a ball. They can have all that kind of rattiness type stuff that goes on with a c-section and the compressions. And you know, if you’ve had forceps or ventouse that has failed and then you’ve gone to c-section so they’ve had the compressions up here. But this is the um the main point, you use the probiotics to get the good stuff back in.


So you need to look at the probiotic section and understand more about them but um the c-section is a big trigger factor for colic which can be helped. I can’t emphasize this as much as um enough. Don’t worry about having the c-section now. That’s gone and done. Get the probiotics in and it will really help your baby.
