Q.

Probiotic

My 5 months old is currently on a homeopathic probiotic of 2.5ml
3 x day - could this give her the watery type stools ?? Could i rather jsut give her 2.5ml daily ??

Is it safe to give my 5 month old baby a probiotic everyday ??

It is safe to use a probiotic but I only recommend Reuteri Infant Drops for babies and this must be given once a day.Her watery stools could well be due to excessive amounts of the homeopathic probiotic.
