Q.

Probiflora

Hi Doc, me again. The breastfeeding is going a little bit better, although he still does not want to take the left side.
But a new question - as he was a c-section baby is necessary to give him some Probiflora? Read somewhere if they go through the birth canal, they pick up good bacteria.
Thanks again

No it is not necessary to give your baby a probiotic. Your breastmilk is the best natural immune booster for your baby.
