Happy Tummy, Happy Baby – BioGaia ProTectis Probiotic Baby Drops
This article is sponsored by BioGaia but the opinions shared are my own.
This year has been really eventful for my family. My sister whom I adore had her first child in August. Making me a first-time auntie to a beautiful boy. Having another tiny human in our family is simply amazing. I only wish we lived closer so that I could see him every day.
As the eldest child and the first of the lot to have children, I was prepared for some late night calls for tips and advise. One thing my sister and I talk about more often than I care to admit is poop. Is it supposed to look like this? Is it too yellow? The list goes on. lol
A few weeks ago, she was worried that the baby was really gassy. Unfortunately, that’s something I wasn’t too familiar with since my kids didn’t have that issue when they were babies.
I got to reading about probiotics and its benefits and suggested she try BioGai ProTectis Probiotic Baby Drops.
What are probiotics?
According to WebMD, probiotics are “live bacteria and yeasts that are good for your health, especially your digestive system.”
Probiotics can be found in foods such as Yogurt, Miso Soup, and even Kimchi! But the baby is a WEE bit little to be eating kimchi, that’s where BioGai ProTectis Probiotic Baby Drops comes in.
About BioGaia ProTectis Probiotic drops with Vitamin D3
BioGaia Protectis baby drops D3 is a food supplement containing the patented lactic acid bacterium Lactobacillus reuteri Protectis®/TM (L. reuteri DSM 17938) that helps the good microorganisms restore a natural balance in the gut. Because L. reuteri Protectis naturally colonizes humans it has a strong adaptation to persist and interact with humans.
BioGaia ProTectis Probiotics baby drops contain sunflower oil, medium chain triglyceride oil (palm kernel), L. reuteri DSM 17938 and vitamin D3.
How to use.
Simply give baby five drops daily to your baby to promote a healthy digestive and bone health.

I think probiotics are important for everyone, but I didn’t know they had ones for babies. It makes sense, though 🙂
Rebecca Bryant says
I am a huge believer everyone should take a probiotic for a healthy tummy. I didn’t, however, know they made them for babies as my baby is 17. I like this idea so baby has a healthy tummy too.

What a gorgeous bubba! It is definitely important to keep your babies tummy and these baby drops look ideal for promoting your babies health! Beautiful photos x
Beth Davidson says
I didn’t know anything about probiotics until I had a baby, and then I learned everything! And you and I have both had one too many poop conversations. Lol.
Karen Morse says
I love that this is really easy to use for the parents. I think probiotics is important and it’s nice to see a product that’s for babies!
Firstly, your nephew is SO cute! I ever had this issue until my third baby – she had such severe acid reflux, her entire digestive system was a mess. Probiotics are great for wee babies when they are not feeling well
Your little one is just too precious! Absolutely adorable! Thanks for letting me know about these drops. I have a friend who has a beautiful infant. I’ll pass the info along!

I had no idea that there were probiotics for babies. This is great, and I wished that this would have been around when my kids were babies.
Laura @ MommyDearest says
probiotics are fantastic for gut and overall health. I had no idea they made drops for little babies.
AnnMarie John says
Probiotics are really important especially for our digestive health. It’s really nice that there’s probiotics for the babies!
Krystal Butherus says
I was not aware they made probiotics for babies. I feel that that’s a great thing, to help keep their digestion as normal as can be.
Reesa Lewandowski says
My daughter always had an upset tummy. These would have been wonderful for her! I take Probiotics and they really do make me feel good!
NJ Nowoselski says
That is such a cute baby!
I am just finding out about Probiotics because I am having issues. Still I was surprised you can get this for baby. Makes sense though. So many things have changed since I had babies. For the better! I will be keeping this mind when the grand baby is born next Spring.
Quirky Homemaker says
I think that strain is one that I take now, too as an adult. It has done wonders for some of the non-digestion issues I was having. Looks like an easy-to-take form for babies.
Terri Steffes says
I was enjoying the article until I came to that baby, then I ADORED this article! hahaha! I love those eyes!! Probiotics are the answer to so many ailments.
Jessica Joachim says
I wish I would have known about probiotics for babies when my daughter was little. I used something similar for my son and could totally tell a huge difference.
I never realized how important healthy bacteria was until my baby started getting sick all the time.
Cindy Ingalls says
Probiotics are such a benefit for digestion and health. These drops sound so great for little tummies who often have trouble with digestion when they are very small.
I had no idea that they made these for babies. And it seems they made it pretty easy for the parents to give it to the children. Great stuff!
I’ve never heard of this before! I will for sure have to remember this once baby arrives and keep some on hand! Sounds useful!
My baby has digestive issues from time to time, so something like this would probably be beneficial. Thanks for the heads up on this company!
You’ve got a cute baby!! Probiotics and Vit D is good for everyone. I definitely take both everyday. However, I didn’t know babies needed it…but your little one looks mighty healthy.
Cassie Tucker says
I didn’t realize babies could start on probiotics so young. I will have to tell my family with young children about these drops.
Thank you Lady Marielle for the Happy Tummy, Happy Baby and the precious images.
I’ve taken Probiotics for myself, never realized they come in baby version too. I will pass along this information to my girlfriends with little ones. Thank you.
How often would you suggest giving probiotics to a baby?
Marielle Altenor says
It depends on the probiotics you are taking. BioGaia suggests giving babies five drops daily.
