Yes. I don't use probiotics as often as I probably should though. DS is very healthy. Only ever been seriously ill after having been vaxed (imagine that). We have also used collidal silver with minor colds and a suspected ear infection. We also use floradix iron supplements but my son is iron deficient. My DS is 14 months old, breastfed, and eats mostly organic foods.

I don't as infants but when they are older probiotics are great and collodial silver can be great as well not sure what it has to do with being unvaxed but oh well

Not with babies but with older kids/ toddlers! IDK about the silver though. Probiotics seem to be necessary with my kids LOL

When babies/toddlers and are breastfeeding and then breastfeeding and eating a well rounded diet, no. When they become older and picky eaters, yes.

Probiotics only given with antibiotics (when absolutely necessary) or tummy problems.

I give my baby breastmilk-that pretty much takes care of any needed supplements in the diet.

We do a multivitamin for toddler/child. Probiotics only while on antibiotics.
