Culturelle® Baby Grow + Thrive Probiotic Packets
Helps support a healthy digestive system for better nutrient absorption*
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 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.
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.
