Ideal for balancing gut flora of babies and small children
A healthy gut means improved absorption of nutrients, elimination of waste and improved comfort in babies experiencing digestive issues. It also means a better functioning immune system. Baby Probiotic+ contains both prebiotic and probiotics helping to populate and restore balance of gut flora in their delicate digestive systems.
Colic can be common in the first few months of life and is a sign that baby is suffering from digestive upset and pain. If breastfeeding, it is important that mom check her own diet for potential problematic foods. If bottle-feeding it may be an indication that baby is having a hard time digesting the current formula and an alternative may help. In both situations adding probiotics can help ease discomfort by aiding digestion.
Constipation is not too common in newborns but it does occur occasionally. It is more likely to be experienced by older babies, especially once foods are beginning to be introduced. Probiotics can aid digestion and support healthy elimination.
Eczema can be a sign that baby is reacting to a food or chemical in their diet (or mom’s diet if breastfeeding) or environment or that there is an imbalance of the good and bad bacteria in the digestive tract. Adding probiotics helps increase the good bacteria in the body, which further keeps the bad bacteria in check.
WHAT ARE PROBIOTICS AND WHY MIGHT BABY NEED THEM?
Probiotics are the healthy bacteria that live in our digestive tract. They help keep our immune systems functioning properly, are essential for digestion, assimilation and elimination of the foods we eat and have been found to protect against food allergies. Babies surprisingly are born with a sterile digestive tract but healthy bacteria starts colonizing immediately at birth. Their first exposure to probiotics is through delivery when they gulp some of mom’s flora in the vaginal canal. They continue obtaining these healthy microorganisms through skin-to-skin contact and from breastfeeding.
There are certain instances when infants benefit from additional sources of probiotics. If mom received antibiotics during labor or delivery then her own flora would have been destroyed leaving little to pass on to her child. If baby was delivered by cesarean birth the healthy bacteria would not have been shared from mother to baby or if mom is unable or chooses not to breastfeed then the baby would not be receiving the amounts of probiotics he/she normally would. In these instances babies can benefit from an additional dose of healthy bacteria to help colonize and establish their immune and digestive systems.
Sometimes the early days of a newborns life can be challenging and babies experience uncomfortable and unpleasant symptoms. When this happens it is painful for everyone. Probiotics can help reduce many of these symptoms.
