Many people know that probiotics are good for babies, and adults, but don't know the reasoning behind why?
Trillions of bacteria already live in your own GI tract and your babies, some things interrupt these and wipe out the good bacteria, such as stress, sickness, environmental toxins. Babies that are born through the birth canal contract some of their mothers 'microbes'. Babies that are born via c section miss out on getting their mothers microbes, and end up with a different type of flora. When you nurse your baby, you help build up this healthy bacteria. Your milk contains pre-biotics which help this good bacteria to grow and flourish in your baby.
By adding probiotics or 'good bacteria' into your Childs GI tract you are encouraging good bacteria to flourish and to wipe out the bad bacteria.
