    The benefits of probiotics are felt throughout the body– a stronger immune system and better nutrient absorption, among others. Probiotics show up in a range of health foods, yogurt, kefir, kombucha and sauerkraut. None of which are appropriate for young infants (although introducing sauerkraut may result in some interesting photos on your social media feed.)

  • Refusing the bottle? Milk tasting soapy or sour? Excess lipase may be the cause.

    Lipase is a naturally occurring component in breast milk and in every person’s digestive system, it helps our bodies break down the fat we eat and use it in useful ways inside our bodies. Lipase plays an important role in keeping your baby healthy by helping her body absorb the nutrients from your breast milk.
