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.*

This is a very potent formula. I gave my 18 mo old a half dose and he had a very big reaction - did not eat solids for 2 full days (survived on breastmilk!), diarrhea, rash, the whole shebang. I take this to mean his gut really needs it and will continue use soon, but PLEASE do yourself a favor and take their advice to start with a smidge…by which they must mean just a few GRANULES, definitely not as much as a half dose.SSmidge®1 week ago
Thanks so much for sharing your feedback about our Infant Probiotic. Smidge probiotics are formulated to be pure, potent and very therapeutic. And we’ve eliminated the ingredients and strains found in other probiotics that can cause negative reactions. Some people may still 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, rash, diarrhea, or constipation. This is a typical response to starting with probiotics. 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. Please also keep in mind that with all of our probiotics, it’s important to start slowly, with a low dosage. Our probiotics are pure, potent and have no additives, so you don’t need much! We appreciate you sharing with us today. Have a nice day ahead!
- BBrittneyVerified ReviewerReviewingInfant Probiotic PowderI recommend this productRated 5 out of 5 stars2 weeks agoEczema
I have waited a month to write this review. My 7 month old began to get eczema around 5 months old. We started this probiotic + quick daily baths followed by a thick coat of Tubby Todd All Over Ointment + we also switched her formula to Kendamil Goat that contains HMO (USA version). The UK version contains Fluoride.
The first week on the probiotic, her skin flared really bad… so I decided to do it every other day for a couple of days. Week two and three, it would have good days and bad days. Finally a month in, we give it to her every day and her skin has cleared. She has hypopigmentation where the eczema was, but she finally has baby soft skin like she should. Another perk is she is having regular bowel movements everyday. She was extremely constipated before with rock hard poops. Hope this review helps another baby out there! We highly recommend it!SSmidge®2 weeks ago

Baby Dominic was going 12 days between poops! This was no good. I turned to Smidge, started slow like they suggest and now he’s a regular guy ;) Pun totally intended. My two year old is getting in on it too and she can’t wait to see Mommy bust out the “tiny spoon” every day, she just loves how cute it is. Thanks Smidge for a wonderful product!SSmidge®3 weeks ago

I’ve been using this probiotic for my 15 month old for about 3-4 weeks to help with his eczema and it made it worse than it’s ever been. Did not work for him.SSmidge®3 weeks ago
Thank you for sharing this honest feedback, Courtney. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused you. We've eliminated the ingredients and strains found in other probiotics that can cause negative reactions. Some individuals may still experience a little discomfort in the initial weeks of starting out 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. Please also keep in mind that with all of our probiotics, it’s important to start slowly, with a low dosage. Our probiotics are pure, potent and have no additives, so you don’t need much! Try lowering the frequency or dosage and you should see these die-off symptoms start to subside. We hope this information helps. Have a great day!
