In recent years the importance of gut health has seriously come to light; it’s not just for health fanatics anymore. I, like many adults, take a probiotic every day. We’ve learned that keeping a healthy balance of bacteria in our guts can have massive impacts on our overall health, even helping to build up our immune systems. Guess what? Babies and kids can reap those benefits too.
It’s not just crunchy mommas giving their babies probiotics anymore. Many wellness advocates, from pediatricians to chiropractors, suggest that giving babies probiotics can help with gut issues ranging from gassiness to constipation to reflux. I can also attest, as probiotics really turned things around for my colicky baby. After a week or so of being on probiotics, the baby’s reflux and gassiness improved immensely.
