Gerber Soothe® | Probiotic Colic Drops is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 110.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Within a Week! At about 6 weeks my baby started fussing for 3-4 hours consistently every night. After about a week and a half I came across some very compelling research connecting colic to gut imbalance, and another study in which colic was successfully treated using L. reuteri. I went looking for a product that matched the strain and dose used in the study and bought this. After a couple days of using it, the colic was reduced to only about an hour of less-severe fussing, and after a couple more days it was completely gone. I'm very glad I found that research and purchased this product. I will recommend it to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am very pleased with this product. My baby is very gassy and the soothe drops help him. He also has acid reflux and is on medication. At first I had discontinued the soothe drops once he was done with the bottle because he was doing a lot better. I waited about two weeks to see if maybe his fussyness was due to the reflux alone and maybe his medication would work. Well he started getting fussy again and so I bought another bottle of the soothe drops and he is a happy baby again. I really love this product the only downfall is the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works but hard to give to baby This product does seem to be helping with my daughters digestive issues. I am still trying to figure out the best way to give them to her. She is bottle fed. She very rarely finishes her whole bottle, so I don't want to mix them into her bottle. I tried putting drops in another dispenser but the amount is so little that I felt what was left in the dropper afterward was probably half of the dose! I have decided to put 2 drops on her bottle nipple twice then one drop, thankfully she's not a crabby baby and lets me take it away and do that. I wish Gerber would come up with a design that would allow us to suck the drops out with a syringe and give to baby that way, similar to Mylicon drops.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This is awesome, but the bottle is so wasteful!!!! I bought this for my two month old, who was having terrible acid reflux problems, as soon as the probiotic worked into her system she hardly spit up and now she hardly gets the hiccups or spits up. It's crazy because you can tell when she has not had them because she gets really fussy. However, these things are very expensive and the bottle has a terrible design that wastes so much of the product, we go threw them very fast and end up spending a fortune because of it, I hope to see a change in the packaging in the near future!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle Product! My 2 month old strictly breastfed baby has had horrible gas pains every night - sometimes for hours. She slept through the night after one dose of the Soothe drops. We're on day 3 and she hasn't had a single episode of crying from tummy pains since we started. Thank you Gerber!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Can't get it out! I am a man and never give reviews on products but I feel I have to on this one. As far as the product goes, who knows if it helps or not because we are also giving her colic calm, baby Zantac, Allimentum, etc. They all seem to do some good but she is still in pain and cries. The issue with dispensing the drops is the real problem. For as much as this little bottle costs, I should be able to get every last drop out. We followed the instructions so the issue is that when the last 3rd of product is left, it simple won't drip. Very frustrating and not acceptable when dealing with a crying baby and frustrated wife. I have to pry plastic top off and pour the remainder in a new bottle every time. Gerber can do better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs a better dispenser This product makes a huge difference in my daughter but I wish it had a dropper. Trying to drip 5 drops into my 2 month olds mouth is ridiculous. It ends up all over her face instead and I waste so many drops. She hates a bottle and won't nurse if I put it on my breast. This product is also very expensive so when half the bottle is wasted just attempting to get it in her mouth it's very upsetting. I have switched to the mommys bliss brand just for the dropper.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the product HATE the bottle I love these probiotics. They helped my little guy so much. However, the bottle they come in is HORRIBLE! it was always a pain to get the 5 drops out... sometimes they would come easily but more times than not they wouldn't come or would take forever. Once my little one started moving more and not patiently waiting for the drops, it became a nightmare and I wasted A LOT of drops. I finally switched to another brand that had a dropper.... but the other brand was not near as good. It didn't help with the belly problems and gas near the same as gerber. Sooo I kept the bottle from the other brand and nownpoor the gerber drops into it. It has a line that u fill the dropper to which is the proper amount for gerber and it has made my life a million times easier! Wish gerber would do this! The. Title is just not baby friendly!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hard to dispense but itWORKS I am a mom of twins ! Around 6 weeks my babies cried almost constantly. Pediatrician recommended these drops. I ran to the drub store desperately to pick up. Only to find a tiny glass bottle for 24.99. Heck, it was worth a try! the First day, I noticed a change in my babies. Bowels were moving faster and less crying!!!! However the stress of getting the drops out of the bottle only adds more stress when you are a full time working mom rushing to not be late for work but these drops are a must to keep babies happy!!! I the design to dispense is horrible. I purchase more than 8 bottles I know and all of them likely has a few drops left in them but it is sooooo hard to get drops out! Please make a better dispensing technique.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Drops are great, design is still bad We just bought these at the recommendation of our pediatrician and while they do seem the help, the bottle design is just as bad as reviews from two years ago say so I’m not sure what improvements Gerber is referring to when their responses state they are working to make the design better. Other probiotics we tried came with a medicine dropper and were much more user friendly! The bottle design is really difficult for a breastfed baby- it’s fine getting the medicine into a bottle but not at all when you’re trying to get it directly into the baby’s mouth

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Produced lots of gas instead of reducing My baby has some food allergy and I am dairy free, soy and wheat free to see if he feels better. We thought to try probiotics but on first day he started to have lots of bloating and gas. He woke up during the night crying for his tummy pain until he poops. I cam feel movement of gas on his gummy. He never had this problem and now after a week using this ( 3 days in 1 week ) he has not felt better. Maybe it takes more time to work and maybe this is a temporary side effect but I was hoping to at least know about possible side effects and solutions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from life saver ! I was at my wits end with my lil guy it was easy to use and did the job, it asks if I received it as a sample and does not let me choose no.. just an fyi [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This is something else I would give this product 1 star if it did not work like magic. Now saying that you need magic to get the dang probiotics out of the bottle. Whom ever designed this stupid thing needs to be canned. The product is 10 stars the Bottle is -10 stars. Parents are having a hard enough time trying to get their kid some kind of relief and we have to fight moving heads and swinging arms and try to get 5 drops of this stuff out. It's like trying to get a square block through a circle hole. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Definitely not 25 servings in bottle I heard great things about the product unfortunately I didn't see results with my twins because I only got about 10 servings out of the bottle. I followed the instructions carefully but bottle was empty after one week. For the price of the product, this is not acceptable. Please consider a new product design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked wonders Amazing product I highly recommend this to babies with colic it has worked wonders for us..I agree it’s slightly difficult to administer the drops but definitely manageable and worth it
Date published: 2019-06-20
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Awful Packaging I bought the product and it’s been helping. However, the product only helps during the day. My little one is still extremely gassy and having issues at night. I can’t find online anywhere if it’s safe to give him a second dose to get us through the night. Also, I’ve been reading the reviews and have the same issue with the packaging. He’s 100% breastfed and doesn’t use a pacifier so to deal with the frustration of trying to get 5 drops out and into him is extremely irritating given the cost of the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love it! We were dealing with quite the witching hour with our daughter when she turned about six weeks old. My parents got us our first bottle of the Gerber Probiotic drops because they thought it would help. It was incredible, she went from grunting till her face turned red and crying for two to three hours in the evening to stopping the grunting completely and only being upset for maybe a half hour in the evenings. I see why people are not happy with the bottle design but we put her drops in a small bottle of pumped breast milk, shake it up, and feed it to her that way. Works like a charm. My only question is how long to keep giving her these drops? She's now four and a half months old and we don't know how long to continue giving them to her. They are a little pricey but she's worth it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for us We were excited to learn about this product and the potential for natural help. Unfortunately it did not provide any relief for our infant. We believe in probiotics and their benefits and take them ourselves but this only dented our wallet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to help but... Got a sample from dr and seems to work. However drops are way too hard to get out. Will not be spending this much money on them until the bottle design is improved...yesterday spent over 10 min and couldn't get out a single drop and supposedly had 5 days supply left. In the meantime will search for other brands with better packaging and also more cost effective. I give the product itself 4 stars but would rate the ease of use as very poor.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from works great, horrible packaging design Pediatrician recommended us to try this for LO's colic. It has helped tremendously and has been a blessing, but you can't get it all out of the bottle and for the price it's just silly to have such a horrible design flaw. You can't get the last 1/3 out without taking the dropper off completely and putting it in your new bottle. This can only work so long because you have to use it within 3 months of opening and have to keep pouring the old into the new...sigh...fix this Gerber!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unbelievably helpful, incredibly costly My nearly 2 month old daughter was put on these drops along with two other specialized products due to her horrible colic (5+ hrs per night alone of nonstop screaming). After just over two weeks the combination of products seems to be going the trick to help her. However, as a new mom just separated from her husband the cost is terribly prohibited. One shouldn't have to weigh paying a bill or buying an up to 10 day bottle of drops (because so much gets wasted from poor design).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hoping it works I can’t say whether it works yet since we just started it today. I bought this for my 5 week old. She has been getting reflux from trying to pass gas. I noticed it has some other ingredients in it. Are any babies allergic to it? She has been a little snotty today since taking it, but it may be coincidental. Also, can my 2 year old benefit from this, or is it just for babies? He has been on lots of antibiotics for ear infections and still screams with gas from time to time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love but the bottle dispensing is the worst!!! This product works wonders but the dispensing of the bottle is the worst!! My little one has had huge improvements with her temperament since beginning the drops but the price of the extremely tiny bottle is steep and I feel like 1/4 of the bottle I waste because I'm unable to get it out and end up having to buy a new bottle. As much as I love the product, the price and hassle with dispensing have left me questioning other mamas for an option that works just as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lifesaver These drops were a life saver for not only my baby but for me too. Noticed a difference within a few days and she was almost 100% by two weeks.. While she is still colicky at 4.5 months her crying time is down to about 10 minutes ( from 3-6 hours a day ) a few times a week. I would and do recommend these drops to everyone with a baby colic or not. I put the drops on the handle part of a spoon and give them to my baby that way. . its easier for both of us that way.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hopeful but difficult Our son’s pediatrician recommended this product and we purchased it straight away. We are hopeful that it helps with his tummy trouble (and the distress!). This product is pricey and meant for infants which makes the delivery system all the more frustrating - especially when breastfeeding. We tried using a spoon as directed on a bottle but we lose a lot of product this way. We continue to use the bottle as it is pricey but wish that the design had infants in mind.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Product needs a dropper! I think this product is working; however, the bottle design is terribly flawed. Other brands have droppers, and I don't know why Gerber designed a such a low quality dispensing bottle. If a baby doesn't finish a bottle of milk, they would not get all 5 drops of the probiotic, so I'm left trying to get these drops directly into my squirming infant's mouth. They don't come out predictably and can rush out, which makes matters even worse. When I got towards the end of the bottle, there was clearly still liquid left and I couldn't get it out. Talk about frustrating when you think you have plenty, and you're completely out! I wouldn't mind paying the price if I could actually use until the last drop, but I'm lucky if I get 50% of the bottle in my infant's mouth. Maybe the bottle was designed to sell that case, it's working.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gerber everyday probiotics drops Got this product has a sample from my son’s Pediatrican, it helps him tremendously with his reflux but it is extremely hard to get it’s not sold in stores you might find the colic drop in store but i find that it does not work as effective as the Everyday drop. Would really appreciate it if the everyday drop was sold in store instead of having to order online and wait days for delivery. Really good product just needs to be distributed more in stores.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wonderful product but horrible design I got this from my pediatrician last month for my 3 month old daughter. She gets very fussy and colicky at night. This works great for her fussiness but it's very frustrating how the design of the bottle hinders you from getting the liquid. I'm debating if I want to continue to struggle with the design or just research and try another product. I love gerber but this design needs to be fixed!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Product, but Poor Bottle Design! I bought these drops for my son who has tummy issues. They have helped and I would recommend them to other moms, however, the packaging of the bottle is terrible. I feel like I am wasting most of the product (expensive at that) because once it is half way gone it is hard to dispense the drops. Wish they would come up with new packaging. I am going to look around at other brands to test them as well before continuing to purchase these.
