This might not be the right place to ask this, but I am trying to find a probiotics for infants that would be safe for Mason? Anyone have any suggestions on what they have used that works great? I use some for Kaylee, but I don't know if it is safe for a 3 month old? TIA!

we gave Kya probiotics when she was a newborn. We just got the powder capsules and broke them open and gave her 1-2 finger-dips worth. That was my midwife's suggestion and it helped a TON with her tummy upsets

If you go to a health food store, they'll have infant specific probiotics in powder form. You can just rub some on your nipple before you BF and he'll get them while nursing.

I bought the children's powder to put in my older son's drinks - for Caleb I just put some on my breast before latching him on a few times a day. My midwife suggested this, it seems to work pretty well.

My doula (and friend) just mentioned this to me today. Liam is the fussiest baby, and I have tried altering my diet in every form to help his stomach upsets and nothing has helped. Gripe water helps somewhat, but I do not want to have to use it all of the time. So I'll be trying this up and coming this week. He has a lot of curdley spit ups (along with the large amounts of regular spit up). And he has wet hiccups any time he is awake. I really hope this helps. His stomach is always so upset that he will not sit on his own. Ever. And I'm so tired! And I hate to see my poor baby uncomfy.
