Reuteri drops
I just want to know whether it is safe to give my 5 months old baby boy 5 drops of Reuteri every morning, will there not be any side effects?

Hi Marlise
Yes it is absolutely safe to give a 5 month old REUTERI Drops daily. Remember Reuteri is not absorbed into the blood stream; it stays in the gut where it acts. It is also indigenous to the human gut, meaning it is found naturally, even if a person had never taken a supplement.
There are no known side effects.
