Just for fun, here is my sweet grand daughter, Reylin! Should I enter her in the contest? What do you think?
Healthy Baby, Happy Mom BioGaia Probiotic Drops
After I had our sweet daughter Reylin, the first weeks were a little rough. Healing from having a baby in general takes some time (I still can’t believe I did that!!) but in the early weeks I came down with a fever and the doctor put me on antibiotics for what they thought was Mastitis. NOT. FUN. I was grateful to have something to start feeling better but after receiving the medication and being told that it would be a good idea for me to take a probiotic I immediately started having mommy guilt as I was still planning on breastfeeding. I did what all new moms do (and probably shouldn’t) I started googling how my new antibiotics could affect baby and I got scared! I didn’t want to hurt this perfect little human in ANY way whatsoever let alone tamper with her sensitive gut health because of my antibiotic!
One good thing did happen with my googling; I came across
BioGaia baby probiotics. Their extremely natural and heavily researched products are aimed at keeping everyone’s (especially baby’s) gut health as strong as possible. Their formulas containing good bacteria help keep our immune systems strong and fight off illnesses and build up what can be lost by taking things like antibiotics. I checked with my pediatrician like I do before giving baby anything and she agreed that this product would be a great idea so I was sold!
I absolutely love/recommend the ‘BioGaia ProTectis Baby with Vitamin D’ drops. Not only does this work great to build baby’s gut health like I was worried about but it also includes the daily dose of Vitamin D that babies need. Since our baby has so far been exclusively breastfed, our pediatrician prescribed us vitamin D drops to give to her daily. (They say that baby’s can lack this vitamin in breast milk, and Oregon is definitely lacking the sun during the winter months). I actually prefer BioGaia vitamin D supplement over the prescription because it contains much more natural ingredients than the drugstores version. (The prescription contained things like caramel flavoring and that just seemed so weird and unnecessary for a newborn!) I love that with using BioGaia’s product I’m not only getting baby extra gut health protection but also giving her the vitamin D she needs too!
BioGaia is designed to grow with you and has products for every age. I am excited to continue working with them and using products that I can feel good about for my little one and I encourage you to give them a try too!
