A lifetime of healthy development for your baby*
The first year of your baby’s life is a critical time for healthy development. Often that translates to milestones like the first smile, first steps, and even first solid foods. Another important Microbiome Milestone is the colonization of good bacteria in the gut that helps shape lifetime health. The safe and gentle ingredients in Culturelle® Baby Grow + Thrive Drops provide good bacteria to help foster the proper gastrointestinal balance that helps develop a healthy digestive system for better nutrient absorption, help promote the development of a healthy immune system and supplement the good bacteria found in breast milk.*
How Does it Work?
As your baby grows and develops, the foundational bacteria they are born with naturally deplete. The probiotics in Culturelle® Baby Grow + Thrive Drops, Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG®) and Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis (BB-12™), stimulate the growth of bifidobacteria and other lactobacilli, helping to keep your baby’s gut microbiota balanced to promote the development of healthy immune and digestive systems.* LGG® and BB-12™ are combined with Vitamin D, an important nutrient for babies to help them build strong bones.*

Why give my baby probiotics?
Gut health is an important factor for immune development and overall health throughout life. The development of a healthy gut begins with baby’s exposure to the right microbes at the right time. This exposure occurs during fetal development and birth and continues over the first two years of life. Several factors help expose your baby to the right microbes at the right time, including a healthy pregnancy, mode of delivery (vaginal vs. c-section), manner of feeding (breast vs. bottle) and medications. Probiotics have also been shown to contribute to the developing microbiota during this critical time.*
What makes Culturelle® Baby the best choice?
Culturelle® Baby is specifically formulated for babies. Our products include Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG®), the most clinically studied probiotic in infants††. Culturelle® Baby Drops are easy to use and include our patent-pending emulsion technology, which keeps the probiotics equally suspended for consistent delivery. With over 20 years of experience delivering effective products, Culturelle® is the #1 pediatrician recommended probiotic brand†. This safe and gentle line of probiotics also includes additional, carefully selected ingredients to support your baby.*
How do I choose between Culturelle® Baby Calm + Comfort and Grow + Thrive Drops?
While both products are designed for babies 0-12 months old, Culturelle® Baby Calm + Comfort includes Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG®) to help moms soothe their little ones with occasional digestive upset, a common cause of fussiness and crying*, plus chamomile. Culturelle® Baby Grow + Thrive is a daily probiotic supplement that delivers Vitamin D (the vitamin that pediatricians recommend for babies), to help support baby’s healthy development.*
How do I choose between Culturelle® Baby Grow + Thrive Drops or Packets for my baby?
Culturelle® Baby Grow + Thrive Drops are formulated for babies 0-12 months. Grow + Thrive Packets are designed for babies 12-24 months as they begin to explore new foods and environments.
Why are the drops cloudy?
The cloudiness is a result of our patent-pending emulsion technology, which keeps the probiotic in Culturelle® Baby drops uniformly suspended for a consistent amount of probiotic in each serving.
Why shouldn’t I wash the dropper in between uses?
Washing the dropper could introduce moisture and other contaminants into the bottle which could compromise the quality of the product.
When should I discard the bottle?
Culturelle® Baby products provide a one-month’s supply of daily probiotic for your baby. Please discard the product six weeks after opening. Repeated opening and closing of the bottle exposes the probiotic to factors that compromise the quality of the product over time.
Can I give my infant Culturelle® Baby Grow & Thrive products if my baby is getting vitamin D supplemented formula?
Exclusively formula-fed infants consuming less than a liter of infant formula per day are likely not consuming the recommended daily intake, 400 IU(10 mcg), of vitamin D each day. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that infants, including those who are not consuming a liter of infant formula a day, supplement with 400 IU (10mcg) of vitamin D. Culturelle® Baby Grow & Thrive products are formulated with 10 mcg of Vitamin D (equivalent to 400 IU). Your pediatrician or healthcare professional is the best source to help you determine how much Vitamin D is appropriate for your baby.
Can I give my infant Culturelle® Baby products if I am breastfeeding?
Yes, Culturelle® Baby drops are convenient for breastfeeding moms. Culturelle® Baby Grow + Thrive is formulated with 10 mcg Vitamin D (400 IU), which is important for breastfed babies. Culturelle® Baby products can be dispensed directly into baby’s mouth, bottle or while breastfeeding.
