Better options: Probiotics are good bacteria but we have to remember that they are made in the lab. So for a little baby like this better options are diluted goat yogurt or kefir. If you use probiotics use the smallest amount diluted in water to make sure your baby has no reaction.
It should be less than 1/10 th of a capsule a day.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
