Bloating: A very good quality probiotic will definitely help your baby. Orthomolecular products sells a good one that doesn't need refrigeration. It will provide better overall health too.

Diet Problems: Altho probiotics may help, the best answer is to identify what in her diet is causing the digestive problems.Although there are many possibilities, that you can identify with an elimination diet, the most common cause is the onset of a dairy intolerance.Eliminate all dairy products for 5 days and see what happens.And discuss this with your pediatrician.
