i was mixing probiotics with fruit for my daughter, but now she won't eat if we feed her and doesn't take a cup. i was giving her the kind the pharmacist keeps that you keep refridgerated. can it be cooked? i could mix it with her eggs for breakfast. i can't think of how else to do it besides sprinkling it on fruit, but that would waste so much of it to the floor and down her shirt!


drowning in hormones with 4 daughters and an understanding, loving hubby. also some dogs. my life is crazy and we are always learning.

Can you disguise it in a spoonful of applesauce or yogurt? That's what I do with my daughter, but I'm not sure how old baby is. I just mix it in with the first bite or just do one quick bite first thing in the morning.

With 3 month old ds, I just wet my finger and wipe the powder on the inside of his mouth.
