Yo-Baby!

About a couple of months ago when we were searching to increase Johns exposure to different foods, we started him on Yo-Baby yogurt for breakfast every morning. He loved it and took to it well and with cereal added in, it gave him a little bit more consistency to get used to.

Recently, we ran out of Yo-Baby and didn't get anymore for a while. We just figured that he could eat another of his favorite foods for breakfast. But after a few days of going without it, we discovered one benefit of Yo-Baby that we overlooked and that is that the yogurt kept him regular. On the yogurt, constipation hasn't ever been a problem for him. But not getting his daily dose of it has firmed things up quite a bit to where he has a much more difficult time having a BM. So, it is back on Yo-Baby for him.

Yeah, I never knew probiotics worked two ways when it comes to BMs. I used to buy them as a powder and add it to Goldie's baby food, but now that she feeds herself its a little trickier. This post was a good reminder for me to not let that slide.

I am catching up on blogs, so I will comment here on the last few posts. I really appreciate all that you have written on PT and playtime. I have really been working with Sydney lately with standing and walking and doing it totally through "play". She is making great progress lately and she LOVES our "games".

Yes! If Yo-Baby gets old and he doesn't want to eat it any more, you can always use a powdered pro-biotic, which generally supplies a greater variety of healthy gut flora. It's also great for the whole family if there's been a GI bug or if anyone's on antibiotics.
