6-month-old Babies Vomit After Taking Probiotic Supplements?
Want to ask, for giving Lacto B to a 6 month old baby with vomiting but not diarrhea, can I do it or not ??
Good evening, thanks for the question
Lacto B contains probiotics which are food supplements containing microorganisms that can change the flora in the digestive tract into normal. The use of probiotics according to research is effective for the treatment of acute gastroenteritis (vomiting) caused by viruses in children and preventing the incidence of diarrhea related to antibiotic use.
There is no further research on the effectiveness of giving probiotics in complaints of vomiting without diarrhea, because this probiotic works directly in the intestine rather than in the stomach. Further consult with your pediatrician regarding the condition. However, if in its development it is found that changes in the consistency of bowel movements and frequency of bowel movements become frequent, then administration of probiotics from the beginning of symptoms will be very beneficial to reduce the duration and severity of the disease.
That's all, hope you can help
