I was advised to try a probiotic by my Baby Massage class leader and came across these. They helped both problems (gut & constipation), we now have a much happier baby.
I really think these should be mentioned by doctors and healthcare professionals when any baby has antibiotics as their system is so delicate and it can cause real problems.
Note, the probiotics can also create more reflux though . I advise trying half sachet if this happens- I find a full one can be too much for a small baby (she was 7lb)
This review would be 5 stars but both orders arrived with the packaging squashed with the product hanging out.
I hope this review will help others
The bacteria used look appropriate, and probably safe particularly over a short course, which is of course the number one consideration.
It comes in a sachet which you can mix with food or a drink. This obviously makes it easier to hide, very important when trying to give to a child.
It does have a taste to it, Ive tasted it myself with water, not necessarily a bad taste but a REALLY fussy child MIGHT notice and turn their nose up. Mine is quite fussy but chugs it down quite happily with yoghurt or ice cream. Its pretty easy to hide.
One slight drawback is mixability, it does sometimes clump rather than mix in. Havent worked out why yet but I'm sure there's something that can be done. Mixing it with a drop of water first into a paste and then mixing into food is an option worth considering, but Ive not had to do that yet. Theres not that much in a sachet anyway, a few grams, so no big deal.
As for efficacy, always hard to say, but daughter is nine days into her antibiotic course and has not yet had the "antibiotic runs".
I actually think they might be beneficial for me too (I have SIBO issues) so I will be taking them for a couple of weeks once daughter has finished her course. A different strain of B-Infantis for example is in adult Align which is more expensive, and fared badly in recent trials. This may be a better alternative for those adults like me who are interested in the potential benefit of B.Infantis.
Optibac is a brand I trust, they just do probiotics instead of just dabbling in it which is a good sign. They also invest in research.
I have also used their Saccromyces Boulardii product myself and found it well tolerated and surprisingly effective (I have low expectations!).
They worked pretty quickly (within a day or two) to help get his stomach back in order. We’ve actually used them a few times now - eg when he has had an upset tummy caused by antibiotics.
I’m happy to thoroughly recommend them.
