Best way to give 8 month old probiotics?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My dd doesn't take a bottle, what is a good way to give her probiotics? I tried mixing some in a little carrot puree but it doesn't dissolve well and from her facial expression I could tell it was bitter. Any ideas? Thanks!

A little messy but put some on you before you nurse

I'd suggest applesauce but if carrots weren't good, I'm not sure that'd work either. I used to pump a little milk & mix that with my sons probiotics, just a few sips worth, does she refuse the bottle or just doesn't regularly take one?

She doesn't regularly take a bottle, but she sometimes has cool water in one for her teething comfort. I'll try to mix some with pumped milk and see if she takes it.

im not sure where you live, but in canada we have these AMAZING probiotic drops made specially for children/babies  they are called biogaia probiotics and they are in a small glass bottle, kept refrigerated at the health food store pr natural pharmacy. i highly recomend them. you need like 3-5 drops and i would just drop it right into my babies mouth while i was playing with her or changing her. i use them on and off now, but when she was tiny she had serious projectile vomiting issues and they cleared up almost immediately with these. my midwife suggested them.

If probiotic powder mixed into food or on your nipple doesn't work, you could make a little paste and swab it on the inside of her cheek. That would reduce contact with some of the more taste-sensitive parts of her tongue.


Good luck! :-)

My son sucks it right off of my finger.  Ours isn't bitter though, it's sweet, I've tasted it.
