Created especially for babies, toddlers, and children up to 12 years old.
Bought this to try and see if it would help my daughter (given antibiotics at birth, reflux until 8 months and still vomitting every other week or so at 2 years old - unfortunately not given much help from gp) as I suspect that antibiotics given to a newborn don't bode well for long term gut health - and saw this to be the case myself. She's been taking this now for a month and a half and I can say it has helped a LOT. She has only been sick twice in that period of time which is a huge improvement from where we were, and more than anything, I feel good in knowing we are potentially restoring some of what was lost so early on in her life. If your little one has had an antibiotic treatment I really recommend giving this a try.
Since my older daughter was born 7yearsagain, I started to buy this product; they work so well. I'm feeding my second daughter with this product again.
Totally love this product, I have both my children on these probiotics my eldest boy being 6 and my youngest girl being 9 months. It supports both of them with immunity and helps my little girl with wind after her bottle. I put the powder in her last bottle at night and she sleeps through contently. When I have run out previously she has woken several times so I know they must be helping her stomach.

Probiotics are very safe(1,2) and you can’t ‘overdose’ on them. But in general, it's best to stick to our recommended daily amount of 1-2 sachets - especially if your child takes other vitamin supplements containing Vitamin D – keep an eye on their daily Vitamin D intake. If you have any concerns, please contact our nutrition team.

Yes, Optibac Probiotics Babies & Children is vegetarian, and it’s also gluten and dairy-free. There is no dairy present at any stage of the manufacturing, and the live cultures strains are vegan, but the added Vitamin D3 is vegetarian.
If you were previously using BioKult Infantis, you will know it has been discontinued. Fortunately, we’ve got you covered! Optibac Probiotics Babies & Children is an ideal BioKult Infantis alternative. Like BioKult Infantis, Optibac Probiotics Babies & Children probiotic sachets contain added Fructooligosaccharide (FOS) fibres to maintain natural gut bacteria, and Vitamin D to support immune health. But unlike BioKult Infantis, Optibac Probiotics Babies & Children is dairy-free, vegetarian, and contains the world's most researched live cultures strain(1), Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG, extensively studied in infants and children.
