This is one of the only probiotic in drop form I have been able to find which is a need for those who are exclusively breastfeeding. This has been a lifesaver for my newborn who has had some gut discomfort. The drops come out fairly quickly which I like since you need to get 5 drops in their mouth at one time. I can get them in before he moves his head or closes his mouth. The vitamin D is not the full quantity of what breastfed babies need so we still give him additional supplements there.

Love this product. It made a world of difference for my baby. He was always gassy and grunting as a newborn, and once we started these, it eased right up. I ran out of them for a week, and the grunting came right back. Now, at 5 mo he's still on them and doing great. Love that there's vit D in there too. Definitely save money not having to buy those drops separately. I add enough to my cart for free shipping, and my package always comes days later - super quick!

That's the smallest bottle of anything ever that I've ever paid $40 for! And..That's the most I've ever paid for shipping from anywhere and at $20 for one miniature sized bottle- I figured it must be a fantastic product that others would be willing to do so. For $60 total, I tried out the "wonder product" and did not find it did anything at all. It's all relative they say- depends on the person. Ok, I could consider finding out if a different dose would make a difference but I can't afford these prices anyway. I am left feeling taken advantage of by people who know their product is for the desperate..

We used BioGaia back when my boy was only a few months old. Was a great help for his gas problems. We've just started it again in the hopes it will help prevent illness with him starting daycare. So far, he's been more regular in the week since starting it. I didn't realize this was the one with vitamin D added, so make sure you're not giving too much b/c of multivitamins if you get this one. It's nice that well.ca sells the larger 10ml bottle, I can only get the 5ml elsewhere and it doesn't last as long.
