Group 1 will receive B. breve CECT7263 (2x10E8 CFU/day) one dose per day, group 2 will receive B. breve CECT7263 (1x10E8 CFU/day) and L. fermentum CECT5716 (1x10E8 CFU/day) in one dose per day, group 3 (control group) will receive simethicone 20 mg 4 times a day.

Detailed Study Description

Infant colic affects between 3-40% depending on the different criteria used for diagnosis. Recent studies carried out in healthy infants have shown that the consumption of B. breve CECT7263 and L. fermentum CECT5716 during the first months of life are related to a lower risk to present episodes of crying characteristic of infantile colic.

The objective of the present study is to compare the effect of B. brevis and B. brevis\L mixture. fermentum with respect to simethicone.

It is a multicenter, controlled, randomized, blind, parallel-group, 4-weeks nutritional intervention study which will be conducted in 18 public and private hospitals and health centers from Spain.
