A baby’s gut contains no bacteria at birth. A newborn’s microbiome starts to get colonized during birth and every day after. Baby probiotics are good bacteria that support infant digestive health, a healthy immune system, and healthy intestinal function. Babies get probiotics from their mothers during vaginal birth and breastfeeding. They also get them from their environment and what they eat and drink. Breast milk probiotics can also depend on the mother’s nutrition status.
As babies get older, they may benefit from infant probiotic supplements even if they are breastfed infants. ProBiota Infant is a powdered probiotic that is designed for infants 6 months and older. Your healthcare provider may recommend starting them sooner.
