Probiotics for babies and infants

All babies are born with a sterile gut. After birth, babies naturally introduce bacteria to their gut through the breastmilk or formula they drink and later, through the food they eat. these bacteria are an important part of the way that humans digest food and extract all the necessary nutrients. They also play a role in your baby’s developing immune system.

Babies who are born via cesarean section don’t get access to the good bacteria in mom’s vagina (if she has them in the first place). Those babies are colonized by mom’s skin or other bacteria in the sterile operating room.

If mom isn’t eating a healthy diet rich in probiotics, her milk may not be as good as it could be and the use of supplements would be advised.

Probiotic supplements are intended to aid the bacterial colonisation of your baby’s gut or to restore it when it has been disrupted.

Research indicates that probiotics are safe and well-tolerated in normal, healthy babies and infants. At the moment, research evidence suggests that probiotics could help to manage allergies and provide relief from eczema symptoms.
