B. infantis is a folate-producing beneficial bacteria, primarily found in the gastrointestinal tracts of healthy infants (and human mouths) and breast-fed babies. It may play a critical role in establishing a healthy intestinal lining and a robust and well-regulated immune system.* Research has also linked B. infantis to helping mitigate inflammation* Research suggests B. infantis regulates the production of tryptophan, the precursor for serotonin (the neurotransmitter associated with a sense of satisfaction and happiness).* A note on folate: it’s one of the B vitamins responsible for tissue growth and cell function.*
Bifidobacteria are a group of bacteria that typically live in the human intestines and stomach, that help to perform essential functions like digestion and the maintenance of beneficial bacteria. One study suggests that B. bifidum may support immunity by staving off colds and touches of the flu in the winter months. Another clinical study indicates B. bifidum may help with abdominal discomfort caused by gas and bloating.* And yet another study states that B. bifidum can help with occasional diarrhea.* Clinical research suggests that B. bifidum can help maintain comfortable joint movement.* There’s also a correlation to improved mental health (boosting mood and easing anxiety), as bifidobacterium is classified as a “psychobiotic”, which affects central nervous system-related functions and behaviors mediated by the gut-brain axis.
One of the first bacteria to colonize our bodies at birth, B. longum is associated with helping to digest milk and other challenging foods, as it produces lactic acid from the fermentation of sugar in the gut.* Research suggests that B. longum may support immunity and growth in children.* It’s also linked to helping maintain healthy cholesterol levels already within a normal range.* And it’s been studied to help alleviate stress, support cognition and restful sleep, and help even out mood and behavior.*
L. salivarius is one of the most prevalent probiotic species in human saliva. It produces organic acids from carbohydrates, such as lactic acid and acetic acid. L. salivarius helps keep the microbial population in the mouth healthy, thus staving off childhood cavities when used with a real food diet.* Also, several clinical trials indicate that L. salivarius seems to help support the immune system and, as a result, support healthy skin.* Importantly, researchers state that it may keep the vagina healthy and comfortable by promoting a healthy pH balance.* It's been shown to ease atopic dermatitis.*
B. breve is one of the most helpful probiotic bacteria in the human body due to its unique ability to compete with harmful bacteria by digesting a variety of molecules. It’s also prevalent in the colons of breastfed babies. B. breve is linked to helping with occasional constipation in children.* And when combined with a gluten-free (real food) diet, B. breve promotes microbial balance in childrens’ digestive tracts.* B. breve seems to play a role in helping to establish a healthy microbiome, based on trials involving preterm babies. And, clinical research suggests it may be useful in recolonizing the guts of children who have undergone chemotherapy.* B. breve is also an essential strain for c-section babies — to help replace commensal flora.*
A transient probiotic bacteria that inhabit the human intestines and the colon, B. lactis breaks down body waste and aids in the absorption of various vitamins and minerals.* One study showed that B. lactis helped preterm babies gain weight and helped develop their immune systems.* Beyond the babies, extensive research has shown that B. lactis beneficial for abdominal comfort and proper digestion, helping to get the colon in shape and making occasional constipation a thing of the past.* Notably, preliminary lab research indicates B. lactis shows exciting potential in neutralizing certain issues associated with wheat.* It’s also been found to aid the respiratory system.*
L. gasseri is naturally found in the human digestive and urinary tracts. Preliminary research indicates that L. gasseri may inhibit inflammation signaling at the genetic level and stimulate the immune response.* It has antimicrobial properties and may ease mild, occasional gas, constipation, bloating and diarrhea.*

My 3 month old is exclusively breastfed and hates the bottle so we had to find a different way to give this to him. I extract a little bit of milk with my haaka, pour into a cup, mix the Smidge probiotic in and then feed it to him with a dropper. We just started using so we can’t speak to it’s benefits yet but he doesn’t seem to mind the taste.SSmidge®14 seconds ago

I’m a first time mom and noticed that my EBF baby seemed to be getting constipated. Bicycles, yummy massages, all the tricks weren’t working and I wasn’t happy with liquid laxatives or suppositories as a fix that I felt I would need to use weekly. I ordered this, and take it myself and my baby is back to being regular.SSmidge®1 week ago

My 5 month old is having eczema and I started using smidge probiotic after his pediatrician recommended it. He flared up with in few hours after taking the probiotic. I have to stop it and this stuff is very expensive.SSmidge®3 weeks ago
Thank you for your honest feedback! There are some that will experience a little discomfort in the initial weeks of starting our probiotics. Like with all probiotics, as you rebalance your internal ecosystem, some of the pathogens and undigested foods that are pushed out may not leave gracefully. As these unwanted bacteria "die-off", they can cause mild gas, bloating, fussiness, rash, diarrhea or constipation. This is a typical response to starting with probiotics. While this discomfort is not uncommon, it is certainly not desirable and shouldn't be experienced over the long term. Within a few weeks, once a healthy microbial community is established and the body has cleaned out much of the toxins, these discomforts should end. We appreciate you sharing with us today!
