Some people on here (I'm sorry, but I don't remember who) talked about giving probiotics to a fussy baby and it working wonders. Well, since she was born 5 days ago, Alex has been pretty fussy. It's not hours of screaming colic, but she has reflux and gas and it's rare that she is awake and happy, though she does sleep a good bit -mostly during the day, of course. I also now think I have thrush.
I thought I'd try it so I picked up a bottle of Baby Dophilus (http://www.mannaharvest.net/baby-dophilus-by-jarrow-formulas-2-5-oz.html) at Whole Foods today. On it, it says to give newborns 1/16 of a Tbsp once a day. It's a powder that it say to mix into formula or water. It says it can also be applied to a wet nipple, but doesn't say if that counts as a dose. And how do you even measure that small an amount?!
How have you all administered the probiotics?
