Our peditrician told me to give our DS culturelle mixed with one of his daily gripe water doses for his colic. Has anyone tried culturelle for colic and if so, did it help?

Lurking..............we used Lactobacillus reuteri it is the same basic thing. It will help them build up good bacteria in their guts. It will develop over time this just helps it develop faster. This is a good article pediatrics.aappublications.org/cgi/content/full/119/1/e124 Studies have shown it helps and I did notice a large difference in Shelby. We used this www.healthy.co.nz/view-product-1460.html it is a powder and I could mix it in pumped milk. GL
