New York: Does your baby cry non-stop? Blame it on his gut bugs!Abnormal gut bacteria could play a role in why some babies cry excessively and others don`t, a new study has found.Researchers have identified a distinct bacterial "signature" in the guts of infants with colic, a term that describes babies who cry for more than three hours a day without a medical reason.In the first few weeks of life, colicky babies had higher numbers of bacteria from a group called Proteobacteria in their guts compared to babies without colic."Proteobacteria include bacteria known to produce gas, which may cause pain in infants and lead to crying," said study researcher Carolina de Weerth, a developmental psychologist at Radboud University Nijmegen in the Netherlands.Colicky babies also had lower numbers of bacteria from other groups, called bifidobacteria and lactobacilli.
