BioGaia drops: $30
Ovol drops: $11
Maxton feeling better: Priceless
These three products have become part of our budget and every day routine.
BioGaia drops are fairly pricy and it only takes three weeks to go through a bottle; but, they are worth every penny. These probiotic drops really did help ease Maxton’s colic. We are not out of the woods completely, but we are getting there.
Just as Maxton began overcoming the whole colic phase, he started teething. He is only three months, so he is too young for a lot of the teething gels on the market. So, we went to a Health Food store and found Camilia teething aid. You can take them as young as one month old and it is a liquid they swallow. The kicker? You can give it to them up to 12 times a day. That means a box every two days. At $18 a box, that’s not really an option. I usually give him 2-3 per day. Always before bed, in the day he has his fists and my hand (which he enjoys) – he isn’t really into teethers yet.
Ovol drops are wonderful! These are the cheapest of the three and last the longest. I give him about 1/2 mL twice a day, and they have really helped Maxton with his gas issues. I am happy to say he is constantly burping and farting! This is a great accomplishment when you have a baby full of trapped gas.
At the end of the day, I know all of these products are helping my little babe so they are absolutely worth it!
