Giving baby probiotics

My three month old son has a strong dairy sensitivity and also has acid reflux. I am EBF and the dr. has prescribed Zantac. This has helped with the reflux, but I have just started him on probiotics ... has anyone done this, and other than giving them to him through a bottle, is there another way? (I want to nurse him on me when I'm at home as he gets lots of bottles when I'm at work). I would love to wean him off the Zantac and I'm hoping this helps with both problems! Thanks!

  • I haven't done it... but probiotics are wonderful... they work for stomach problems and allergies are a couple of things I know for sure

  • I'm pretty sure that you can put them on your nipple so baby gets them as he nurses.
