Probiotics For A 2 Month Old?

I have been doing some research on the use of probiotics in infants and was wondering if any of you have used them. If so, did they make a difference in the babies grassiness/fussiness? Is there a specific brand that worked well? My daughter is 2 months old and gets very gassy and fussy. I know this is pretty normal for infants due to having immature guts, but would love to find something that truly helps it. From what I have read about using probiotics, they sound promising. But I would like to hear from folks who may have actually used them.
I would appreciate any input!

You may have overactive letdown/oversupply that is causing the gasiness, etc. Try reclining to nurse: you lean back, she goes tummy-to-tummy with you vertically rather than horizontally, mouth over rather than under the nipple. If this doesn't help by itself, try block feeding: use only one side for a few hours/feedings, then the other side for the next few.
