Life Start Dairy Probiotic Powder by Natren
Natren - Life Start Dairy - 2.5 oz. (70.9 g)
Natren Life Start Dairy is a probiotic product designed specifically for infants. Life Start is made with Bifidobacterium infantis, the beneficial bacteria which is most prominent in infants. Beneficial bacteria is important for people of all ages, including infants. Babies born vaginally to healthy mothers receive their initial supply of beneficial bacteria on their passage through the birth canal. It is important for infants to continue getting beneficial bacteria to help them develop healthy bodies.
Using Life Start stimulates better weight gain through nitrogen retention, which is especially important for formula-fed infants. This bacteria encourages the formation of antibodies against undesirable bacteria and viruses. Pregnant women and nursing mothers should also take Life Start along with their regular regimen of Healthy Trinity in order to give their baby the best start possible. Mothers on a course of antibiotics who are also breast-feeding their babies should give their babies Life Start when beginning their antibiotic course. It is especially important to give Life Start to babies delivered in hospital rooms or especially by caesarean section, since they don't have the advantage of getting the beneficial bacteria from their mother as they pass through the birth canal. Even breast-fed babies need the advantage Life Start can offer, to encourage the optimal health of the baby.
- Produces the lactase enzyme which digests milk sugar and may help to offset lactose intolerance.
- Produces natural lactic, acetic and formic acid which help to keep the intestinal tract slightly acidic and inhibit the growth of undesirable yeast and bacteria.
- May encourage faster weight gain via nitrogen retention.
- Assists in the absorption of calcium and other nutrients.
- When given right after birth, helps to establish an optimal flora found to be a key component in helping to deter predisposition to allergies and asthma.
Life Start can:
- Establish proper digestive function
- Assist absorption of nutrients for healthy growth
- Stimulate the immune system

For bottle-fed babies: 1/4 level teaspoon daily. Mix well with a small amount of unchilled filtered water and give by dropper or add to bottle and mix well. Remember, always refrigerate, do not freeze or put in direct sunlight.
Pregnant women: Along with your own program of probiotics, beginning at the third trimester of pregnancy, take 1/2 to one teaspoon stirred into unchilled, filtered water daily.
Nursing mothers: While nursing your baby, continue taking your own Healthy Trinity®, plus 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of Life Start® stirred into unchilled, filtered water daily. If your child is a lazy nurser, you may mix Life Start® well with a small amount of unchilled, filtered water and give by dropper, or even dab a little diluted Life Start® on your nipples.
Lactobacillus acidophilus supplementation is not recommended for infants without the advice of a physician, as it is not the prominent beneficial microorganism in healthy, breast-fed infants. After weaning, acidophilus increases and Bifidobacteria colonize and become prominent in the large intestine. Acidophilus is sometimes recommended for infants during short periods of acute infection. Life Start®, a milk-based probiotic for infants, should be carefully evaluated: With an increase in casein allergies in infants, please check babies for true milk allergies. You may use Bifido Factor® Dairy-free instead.

I have been using this product every day since my daughter was 2 months old. It's the only thing that got rid of her thrush in combination with me taking Natren Healthy Trinity.
