How can this product help my baby?
Excessive crying, known as baby colic, could be due to many factors. One of the causes of colic may be not having enough good bacteria in the digestive system. Colicky infants have significantly fewer beneficial bacteria in their intestinal tract.
BioGaia Probiotic Drops, with comforting probiotic Lactobacillus reuteri, helps improve the good bacteria in a baby’s digestive system. They are the only colic drops with probiotic Lactobacillus reuteri to ease excessive crying in colicky babies (documented mainly in breast fed infants).
How many weeks/months should I continue giving these drops to my baby?
Results have been seen as early as 1 week, however, the best results have occurred at the 3 week mark. If symptoms persist you should see your doctor.
Is it ok to do 2 drops now and 3 drops in another feed during the same day?
Yes, while it is recommended to provide the dose in one feed, it is ok as long as the recommended dose (5 drops) is provided daily.
My baby does not take a full bottle at once? Can I spread the 5 drops over one day?
While it is recommended to provide the dose in one feed, it is ok as long as the recommended dose (5 drops) is provided daily. If your baby doesn’t typically take a full bottle we would not recommend you adding the drops to your baby’s full bottle, because if they don’t consume the whole bottle, then you cannot know how much of the probiotic they are consuming. In order to ensure your baby receives the entire dose of the drops, you can give them on a sterile spoon or in a smaller amount of formula.
Suitable for all infants – what age bracket is that exactly?
The product is suitable for all infants (including pre-terms).
How should I store the bottle?
Store at room temperature, below 25 degrees.
Once opened, how long can I leave it open?
Once opened, use within 3 months.

I have tried all the colic over the counter things and nothing worked. My 6 week old baby boy was screaming non stop and I was desperate to try one more product. Biogaia WORKS. After his first dose I noticed he had minimal wind, less crying and no screaming! He's a happy settled baby and I wouldn't be without these drops anymore!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND
Saw this product on the news, i have a 3 month old baby with colic. Was on prescription medication which did nothing, he was screaming crying with every feed and was impossible to feed. Very restless sleep with alot of discomfort. Was a little sceptical but my little one has done a 95% turn around no more crying or screaming still has a little wind but nothing like he was before. People thought it was coincidence so i stopped and he went back to his old screaming ways and once i started bio gaia again he was back to a happy baby. I recomment this product 100% and always have a back up bottle as it hasnt come to melbourne yet. Has absolutely changed my baby for the better !!!!!
