Antibiotics Disrupt Gut Flora in Infants
Just another reason to be cautious when administering Antibiotics. This study showed that the diversity of Gut bacteria was still greatly reduced eight weeks after infants were given antibiotics:
Antibiotics disrupt the gut flora in everyone.
I'm a registered midwife in Canada and when I have a mom who has taken antibiotics during labour or if her baby had antibiotics after birth I always recommend she treat her baby with BioGaia. Honestly, it is really helpful to support such a delicate time in livelong GI health.
