Comments about BioGaia Probiotic Straws, 30 ea:

I use these when my toddler's gut gets out of whack or when my kids are sick. The dose is a bit smaller than Culturelle, so sometimes multiple doses are needed for maximum effect, but the ease of delivery of these straws makes my life much easier. They are expensive, but I've found them worth it. Make sure you drink (room temp is best) until the oil bubble disappears. Also, it is allergy safe, which is fantastic.

Comments about BioGaia Probiotic Straws, 30 ea:

I started giving this to my 3 month old to help with gas and reflux. After taking it for four days, I noticed an improvement, and as she continued to take it daily, all gas issues have been non-existent. She still refluxes, however there isn't any pain associated.

This does not work with only one or two doses. To see results it must be taken for a few days in a row, and plan to stay with it.

I did notice that she stopped pooping as regularly when I forgot to give it to her.

We used the drops, and I dripped it in her mouth, on her spoon, and on my nipple for nursing. It's easy to administer if you're creative. For bottle feeding I think it's easiest to just add it in the milk/formula instead of trying target practice with dropping in the baby's mouth. :)

Comments about BioGaia Probiotic Straws, 30 ea:

These work fine. The box they come in is small and doesn't take up a lot of cupboard space. If I use every day my throat gets a little sore, so I can only use every couple of days.

Comments about BioGaia Probiotic Straws, 30 ea:

This is really good stuff and very easy to take!! I didn't think I had anything wrong with my digestion but since I've been taking this, I now know that things weren't right. =)

I've noticed that you don't get as much from the straw depending on the temperature of the liquid you drink through it (perhaps that's why the previous reviewer didn't notice any changes). If you hold the straw up to the light, you can see the little glob of oil that the probiotics are suspended in. If you drink a very cold drink through it, you can see that the glob of oil (which is tasteless) is still there. If you drink something at room temperature, the glob appears smaller and if you drink something that's a little bit warmer, the glob is completely gone. However, you need to be careful not to drink anything hot, as that may kill the probiotics, I'd imagine.

Even though these are somewhat pricey, I think they're worth it for the ease in taking it. And if you think your digestion is fine, think again and try these!! =)

    Comments about BioGaia Probiotic Straws, 30 ea:

    My 9 month old's doctor said to give her the bio gaia because her gas hurts her and keeps her up all night. This was supposed to help her and let her sleep. Since taking it nothing has changed, she is still gassy and it wakes her up all night long. I could not find this product in any store where I live, and it is a nice sized town.[...]
