The Safety Of Using Probiotics For Babies Aged 6 Months?
Is lacto-b for a 6 month baby or not? Then what is the tow dose
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
It needs to be clarified beforehand, what complaints did your baby experience that you wanted to give these products to your baby? Is it recommended directly by the doctor?
Lacto-B is a powdered probiotic which contains good bacteria for the digestive tract, including Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium longum, and Streptococcus thermophilus. Not only that, this product also contains many other nutritional sources, such as vitamin C, vitamin B1, B2, B6, niacin, protein, and fat.
The content in probiotics has many good functions, especially for the digestive tract, including accelerating the healing of diarrhea, preventing diarrhea due to antibiotic use, overcoming constipation, as well as relieving symptoms of lactose intolerance. This probiotic is often given to children and babies in combination with several other types of drugs according to the disease they are suffering from.
You should not give this product to babies less than 1 year old without direct supervision from a doctor. Because, in some children who are sensitive, consumption of this product can cause the stomach to become bloated and uncomfortable. Not only that, although it is rare, there can also be allergic reactions after consuming this drug, causing people who consume it to experience itching, reddish skin rashes, to other more severe complaints, such as tightness, swelling, and so on.
So, before giving this product to babies less than 6 months old, we recommend that you consult a doctor or pediatrician first.
I hope this helps.
