What does Smidge™ Infant Probiotic do?
We conceived this formula to help your baby develop a healthy microbiome and to balance digestion.*
Our customers use Smidge Infant Probiotic for an array of reasons that rank high on the new-parent checklist: to colonize their babies' digestive tracts with beneficial bacteria and support immunity, to help with digestive issues such as acid reflux (GERD), occasional diarrhea or constipation in their kiddies. Or even to soothe common skin issues, like eczema.*
Our formula contains seven tested-and-true strains of human probiotics: B. infantis, B. bifidum, B. breve, B. longum, B. lactis, L. gasseri and L. salivarius.
Here's how probiotics can have a lifetime impact, according to published scientific studies:
The first bacteria to colonize an infant's gut affects the development of its digestive system. And healthy bacteria help babies develop a sophisticated, durable inner intestinal lining.*
Gut bacteria make it possible for babies to digest breast milk effectively, and gain the milk's full nutritional and microbial benefits.*
Probiotic bacteria can help babies make the transition to life outside the womb by supporting the immune system as it develops into a protective and well-regulated force.*
Research on infant microbiomes and the brain reveals that a healthy gut is critical for the development of a sharp, limber brain.*

While Smidge™ Infant Probiotic is intended for infants and tots (pitter patter!), teens and adults can use it too. Especially those with sensitive digestive systems.
And because it contains only pure probiotics (and absolutely no prebiotics), Smidge™ Infant Probiotic works beautifully with real-food, dietary protocols including:
GAPS, SIBO, Body Ecology,
Autism/PDD-NOS, PANDA/PANS, Paleo, AIP, Ketogenic,
(Please note that while this probiotic may be suitable for people on these diets, we do not claim it cures the health conditions that prompt the diets.)
Always start with a smidge! Use one Smidge™ spoonful (20 mg). Take once a day, with food, or as directed by a certified healthcare practitioner. (See "low and slow" note below.)
Product comes with a dosage spoon.
Start low and slow: Our supplements are premium, pure, and potent. Therefore, it's critically important to start slowly, with a lower dosage than recommended. For example, a minimal dose every other day, or even once a week, until you can determine how the supplement affects your body and what feels right for you.
How to take: Use your mini dosage spoon to accurately measure your desired dose of probiotic powder. You can sprinkle Smidge™ Infant Probiotic on lukewarm or cold food. Or it can be mixed in breastmilk, formula, a smoothie, milk, or drink of choice. For toddlers and older children, the Infant Probiotic can be taken with an organic fat, like butter, ghee, emu oil or coconut oil. See dosage instructions above for more info.
Smidge™ Infant Probiotic powder requires refrigeration for long-term storage. Keep away from moisture. Can be kept at room temperature for up to two weeks while traveling.
Introducing our gentle, yet potent Infant Probiotic powder, with the same GutPro® Infant formula you know and love. Created in small batches especially for your baby's developing digestive system.
This pure, custom blend contains seven clinically-proven probiotic strains that are naturally found in healthy infants — to help colonize little intestines with beneficial bacteria from the get-go. It also supports immunity, may help with common baby digestive issues like reflux (GERD), occasional diarrhea and constipation, and even skin issues like eczema.*
Bifidobacterium infantis, a strain that dominates in breastfed babies' intestines, comprises 50% of our formula, as studies show it supports healthy digestion, growth and a robust immune system.*
Just as important, Smidge™ Infant Probiotic does not contain certain strains (or prebiotics) found in other commercial brands that can cause histamine intolerance, d-lactic acidosis or other adverse reactions.
You also won't find common allergens, additives or fillers.
