Moms – did you or your baby receive antibiotics during or after labor and delivery?
If the answer is “yes” then both of you need high-dose “Probiotics” to help you restore the “good” bacteria in your intestinal tract destroyed by the antibiotics to prevent yeast infections. Your baby will need probiotics daily for 2-4 weeks, however, “colic” symptoms typically improve within 1-2 days after starting infant probiotics. Here’s the reason why:
Your baby is born with a “sterile” GI tract. Exposure to antibiotics before, during or after labor and delivery delays the development of “good” bacteria in your baby’s GI tract. Decreased “good” bacteria causes spitting up, stomach pains and reflux. The solution is simple – special “Neonate” probiotics for 2-4 weeks. Infant probiotics come in a convenient powder form. Even if you breastfeed and take probiotics, your baby needs infant probiotics to optimize their digestion and absorption! Call 206-920-7676 to learn more!
