Does that happen? Does breastmilk have probiotics in it? I don't know these things.

oops,sorry. I meant if you were taking probiotics, they should pass through. Whether enough or not, don't know?

I don't have any good reason for feeling this way (I haven't done any research or anything), but I would be wary of giving a new baby probiotics too soon.  Unless maybe there was some kind of problem.  I don't know, I'm just not sure I would trust any product that much, you know?

I did find a study that said that they have found prebiotics in breastmilk. That's good. I still don't know about probiotics and infants...
