Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 1-6 months
Number of Subjects 44
Gender Both Genders
Age Range 0-1
Notes for this study:
_L. reuteri_ DSM 17938 (10^8^ CFU) in infants who are at least six months old but suffering from constipation noted that supplementation was able to increase bowel frequency at all tested time points (2, 4, and 8 weeks) relative to placebo treatment; stool consistency appeared to soften over the course of the 8 weeks of supplementation, but the softening was not significantly different than placebo.

The instances of inconsolable crying during this time did not differ between groups as both increased over the study period.
