My success story
I never write reviews, but when something works so well for me, I feel I must. In January of this year I welcomed my first baby. For two months my newborn was colicky. Every evening was a nightmare. I felt helpless as a new mom that I couldn't make my baby feel better. Its the worst feeling in the world. I would spend hours searching for the answer and for a remedy. Usually anytime I was breastfeeding I was researching... Which was basically all the time.
I stumbled across this and the reviews for it were great. Im not sure if I actually found it through Amazon or not. I read to give it 3 days to start noticing a difference. So at 10 pm after hours of crying by both me and baby, I immediately set out to Walgreen's to buy this product. By the 3rd night my baby was calm and smiling. My family couldn't believe it. He was a while new baby. He was MY baby. I hadn't even got to see what his personality was like because he was always so uncomfortable with gas and reflux. I love this product. Its very pricey, but worth every penny.
Based on advice I read in other reviews, I doubled his doseage for the first 3 days and then gave him the right amount following.
I am due in February with our second baby and I will be starting him\her out on this as soon as my milk comes in.
*** additional info***
Apparently babies do not have healthy gut flora until their digestive system matures around 4 months. You will find a lot of information that suggests that Colic typically resides around 4 months when the babies guts mature. I put two and two together and this is what made sense to me. I was very new to the world of probiotics at the time and now they are a staple item in our household. From probiotic supplements, to kefir, kombucha and fermenting our own veggies.
I am proud of myself for doing all of the researching that I did, because the doctors were of no help when it came to this. There answer for everything was “that’s normal.” I listened to my gut. As a first time mom, there is much to learn, but you know best for your child and its best to trust your instincts.
While I wouldn’t say the probiotics resolved every issue, it made such a huge difference that I feel it deserves 5 stars.
