My son developed a terrible case of plaque. His upper teeth were yellowed and covered in a hard coating that was embarrassing. I contacted a naturalistic dentist who said the only thing they could do is put him under general anesthesia and buff his teeth with pumice! That would have been a $2000 procedure. The worse part would have been the fact that the plaque formed within a couple month period of time so it would have just came back... Then I had an idea... Why not brush his teeth with probiotics?! It worked! The hard unsightly plaque is gone! The bacteria took care of the problem and I imagine is great for his whole system! Thank you
This product is a lifesaver! I had planned a natural birth and ended up with an emergency cesarean. Thankfully my daughter and I came out ok, but she had horrible gas issues that cause her immense pain in her first week of life. Long story short, this product is very much worth the money and the shipping cost. We saw amazing results starting the very first day of use! Her fussiness went down to that of a normal newborn (we started this when she was about 13 days old). Her bowel movements became regular and she is now only up 2-3 times a night. When the gas was causing her pain she was up 5-6 times a night and screaming like she had colic. After using the probiotics for 5 days she has been regular every single day and I couldn't be happier!
I have an 8mth old that was born c section and had diarhea for a month at the age of 4mths. Since that point we have given him baby formula. He was struggling with constipation and as I researched I became aware of this product. I started out with 1/8tsp at first added to his morning bottle. This has helped his constipation tremedously and helping to add much needed goodness to his gut! Win win for us!
