A colicky baby can be an immense parenting challenge, when all efforts to soothe amount to naught. Demonstrably effective remedies are very few and far between, but fortunately, there is now a combination of two unique strains of human-sourced beneficial bacteria that has been clinically proven to reduce the frequency and duration of inconsolable crying stints, both in breast- and formula-fed infants.

Product Notes:

Clinically-Verified, Synergistic, Patented Probiotic Strains for Pediatric Health

Chronically crying, fussy babies are no fun for anyone concerned, and their infantile colic can have serious negative consequences on their caregivers' mental health and parenting behavior.

While the underlying causes are not known definitively, there are indications it is indeed a matter of intestinal gas and abdominal pain, cramps, and/or spasms occasioned by an unfavourable balance between the more gut-friendly families of Lacto- and Bifido- bacteria and the more opportunistic types of proteobacteria (now called Pseudomonadota) associated with producing inflammation and gas.

Thus, probiotics of the first types sourced from healthy babies are a natural choice for reversing that dysbiosis or imbalance, and these two particular strains (which fall into those camps) have been clinically tested and found to be up to the task.

While it's no miracle cure, two separate published clinical trials (with the gold-standard double-blind, randomized, placebo controlled design) found they significantly reduced both the frequency of the actual episodes, and the length of the crying/fussing time when it did still occur.

If the child is taking any antibiotics, administer these drops at least 2 to 3 hours apart from (either before or after) the antibiotics.
