Q.

Yoghurt

Hi doctor,

I' ve been giving my 6 month old reuteri drops as he goes to creche and comes home with a cold just about every 2 weeks! I' ve also started him on organic yoghurt now which he just loves. I just want to know whether there' s any need to give him reuteri or any probiotic when he' s eating yoghurt? Doesn' t it do the same thing? Just don' t want to waste money! Thanks

Do not give your baby yoghurt yet.Only start this when he is 8 months old. You can give him the Reuteri drops.
