Vegan probiotics for babies
If you have been told that the reason that your baby cries and looks uncomfortable is colic, there are some things you could try to improve this, and probiotics is one of them. Probiotics do not cure colic, but, along with other measures, can be of help.
There is good evidence from studies that Lactobacillus reuteri reduces crying or fussy time in breastfed babies. In bottle fed babies the benefit is not so clear.
BioGaia offers vegan probiotic L.reuteri for babies in liquid form.
There are other bacteria strains produced for babies that may help some babies who are experiencing eczema and other allergic conditions. The evidence supporting this claim is weaker than for L.reuteri for colicky breastfed babies, but since they are safe, they may be worth a try.
The following probiotics for babies are 100% vegan:
- Pro-Ven probiotics for Breastfed babies. There is another version for Formula fed babies, but it is not vegan (contains cow’s milk).
- Cytoplan Baby Biotic
- Babawest Multibiotic Powder for Breastfed babies. Again, the version for formula fed babies is NOT vegan.
- Optibac Baby Drops
