Life Start promotes proper digestion and absorption, encourages the formation of antibodies against undesirable bacteria, viruses and allergens. It is especially important for babies delivered by caesarean, and is recommended for both breast-fed and formula-fed babies.
Each powder serving of Life Start provides a minimum of 1 billion Bifidobacterium infantis, NLS super strain.

Natren's probiotic supplements are made from only natural ingredients; without genetically modified organisms (GMOs) or artificial colors.

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!
