💥 Does my baby need a probiotic?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Probiotics are microorganisms that live in the digestive tract and promote good health (often called "good bacteria").⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When you have plenty of good bacteria, they form a protective barrier to fight off other germs and bad bacteria, but sometimes that ratio gets off and your medical provider will recommend adding a daily probiotic supplement.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Most kids don't need to take one, but if your child has been sick a lot, taken multiple rounds of antibiotics, has digestive challenges, etc, it's a good idea to talk to your doctor about their thoughts on adding a probiotic to your daily routine. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Our doctor recommended Culturelle kids after we dealt with several ear infections and antibiotics and clearly J knows exactly what to do with it! 😊⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✈️ SHARE this post with a friend who might find this interesting.

I was able to strap this around me and pull it tight to make sure Baby J stayed in juuust the right place. He was so tiny and I had a hard time propping up our Boppy pillow into just the right spot.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As J grew, it became easier to use our Boppy pillow for nursing. But we also loved it for support during tummy time, laying down with enough elevation to see what was going on around him, and sitting practice as he grew. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Let me know which you preferred in the comments!

Give your baby some pots, pans, plates, silverware, or food to play with, rearrange, and "cook" too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Cleaning? Give your little one their own broom to check out while you're sweeping.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Want to just sit on the couch and relax for a few minutes, while your baby entertains himself? Try setting up an area that features some of the things your baby watches you use regularly. (It could be cooking/cleaning supplies again or something like some spare makeup brushes, books, etc.)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This will help hold your baby's attention because he's so excited to play with "mom's stuff" for a while. ❤️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Love this idea? 🔒 SAVE THIS POST as a reminder!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💬 What's your baby's favorite "mom toy" to play with??
