Formula feeding with probiotic supplements

Specialties Pediatric


I am a first semester nursing student with a new grandson, my daughter in law has switched from breastfeeding to formula feeding. She is wondering if supplementing with probiotics is ok since she has read that it helps give the baby the missing ingredients from him now not breastfeeding anymore, he just turned 2 months old. She will be asking the pediatrician next week but was wondering what experienced nurses like you all would recommend.
