Probiotics for colic? A PURL update
Metadata[+] Show full item record
In "Colicky baby? Here's a surprising remedy" (J Fam Pract. 2011;60:34-36), we summarized a 2010 doubleblind randomized controlled trial (RC T) that found the probiotic Lactobacillus reuteri DSM 17938 reduced daily crying time in colicky, exclusively breastfed infants. A recently published RC T of the same probiotic by Sung et al2 adds to the body of evidence and suggests that the jury may still be out as to the value of probiotics for colicky babies.
