Q: Why are probiotics important for my infant?
A: Developing a healthy microbiome is an important factor for immunity, digestion and overall health. Several factors can impact the microbiome of infants. Building a good foundation for your infant during their early development, with probiotic strains that may help support digestion, gut health, and immunity, will support their overall health.
Adding a probiotic supplement to your baby’s diet may be positive for their health, but we always recommend doing so under the recommendation of your physician, since each baby varies in their health needs. Your infant’s physician, pediatrician or healthcare professional can help you determine if the probiotics are suitable for your child and if so, what constitutes an appropriate dosage.
Q: I noticed some changes to the packaging, including the Supplement Fact Panel. Why is that?
A: We are excited to share that we've reformulated our Infant Probiotic! To ensure that we are in compliance with regulations and our own quality standards, you may notice that our label has been updated to indicate these changes. This new formula still has 4 vegan probiotic strains to support your infant's health!
Q: Why is this product now recommended for ages 6-12 months?
A: Based on our ongoing research into making the best possible products, we have determined that it is best to update our age recommendations for supplementing with infants going forward. The new suggested use for our infant products will be for infants aged 6-12 months, as the health considerations of infants up to six months are so much more variable and nuanced. If you are still interested in giving this product to your child, we recommend speaking with your pediatrician, physician, or healthcare professional to help you to determine if the product is suitable for your infant.
Q: How should I administer this to my infant?
A: Once daily, dispense drops directly into your baby's mouth, or add to formula. Please avoid direct dropper contact to infant's mouth in order to prevent product contamination. Start dosage with one drop daily, slowly increasing the dose over several weeks. Dosage for infants not to exceed 5 drops daily.
