We craft ours specifically for little ones using the simplest, most effective formula possible: the world’s most studied single-strain probiotic and just a bit of oil.

Disperse clumps by shaking well before use. Cloudy yellow appearance is normal. Using dropper provided, fill to line for one daily serving and administer by spoon, mixed into breast milk or formula, or apply to breast during feeding. Do not add to hot food or before warming; heat will damage live probiotics. Glass Dropper: Do not place in mouth. If washed, dry thoroughly before reuse.
- Simple ingredients = healthy product. I LOVE the fact that there are only two ingredients in your probiotic: Corn oil and the organisms. When I compare this to other products in the market, this is the simplest and the best! Thanks for keeping only the good stuff. - Charlene, IA
you might be wondering...
NEVER place the probiotic dropper directly in the mouth. The dropper is made from high quality strengthened glass but is not unbreakable. Administer the probiotic by dispensing the labeled amount (5 drops / 0.33mL / fill once to line marked on dropper) into ready to consume food and beverage, from a spoon or place directly onto the breast prior to feeding. Do not place in HOT food and beverage. Do not microwave after adding. Hot food and beverages can damage live probiotic cells (above 77oF).
We provide 1 billion live probiotic cells per daily serving. So long as you consume probiotics routinely even a few million may be enough to provide a benefit. Studies support taking 1 billion cells daily.
Antibiotics can wipe out the beneficial bacteria in our GI tract while controlling the harmful bacteria they are targeting. This can cause digestive distress ranging from diarrhea to stomach upset. Taking a probiotic regularly can help to reduce the amount of distress experienced and hasten the GI tract returning to a balanced state. Scientists and medical professionals are increasing recognizing the role that a healthy gut microflora plays in overall good health and disease prevention. Probiotics can plan a significant role, even during antibiotic treatment, in maintaining a balanced digestive system.
Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG is a naturally occurring strain of bacteria found in fermented foods and common in the gut microflora (microbes) of normally healthy humans. It is thought by scientists to be an important component of a healthy intestinal tract.
The product can tolerate some mild temperature excursions (held above the recommended storage temperature) with no or only limited loss of probiotic viability. When left uncovered for long periods of time the product might become contaminated from the environment and also would have increased oxidation of the suspending corn oil. These would potentially shorten the product shelf life after opening (we suggest discarding 6 weeks after opening). Excessive heat would reduce the number of beneficial bacteria present. So while the product would be less efficacious it would not be harmful if used.
The line on the dropper would be the entire 5 drop volume. You may aspirate this volume into the dropper and then dispense all at once OR you may aspirate a larger amount into the dropper and then dispense ONLY 5 drops. Both volumes would be the same.
There have been many peer reviewed published scientific studies that have shown the benefits of probiotics when added to the diet. Studies of probiotics have shown benefits to infants, babies and children as well as adults. Some studies have shown that probiotics can specifically ease symptoms in colicky babies, including reducing crying time. Probiotics are meant to be taken on a regular recurring basis, often daily. Probiotics work over time to support overall digestive health and immune function. Thus probiotics will not bring immediate relief to a colicky baby but may reduce the frequency and severity of bouts over time.
Probiotics are living microorganisms that scientific research has shown to benefit human health. Most commonly these are bacteria, but they may also be yeasts. In some cases they are similar to, or the same as, the microbes already found in a healthy digestive tract. Many probiotics were originally isolated from common fermented foods such as yogurt. Mommy’s Bliss Baby Probiotic Drops contain the live culture Lactobacilus rhamnosus GG, the most widely studied probiotic in the world with over 800 scientific publications attesting to the safety and healthfulness of these beneficial bacteria. Like all dietary supplements you should discuss the use of probiotics with your baby’s doctor.
