I was wondering if anyone has any reviews for Zarbees probiotics for infants? My son has issues passing gas, has gas pains, and has 1 BM a day but it's on the drier side. He is on the Similac sensitive formula and was born via c-section.

The AAP take this position on probiotic therapy in infants:
"The addition of probiotics to powdered infant formula has not been proven harmful to healthy term infants. However, there is no evidence of clinical effectiveness, and the routine use of these formulas is not recommended. No studies have compared the health benefits of using these formulas versus breastfeeding."

So basically, the position is they does pose a risk but have not demonstrated any benefit for baby.
