Just wondering about the bacteria Bifidobacterium--I bought Dannon Activa yoghurt in the supermarket and ate half a container before questioning whether I should consume it while breastfeeding. I then looked it up on the internet and it said to consult a doctor before consume when pregnant or nursing! Does anyone know about this? Thank you!
Bifidus is a "friendly" bacteria that is naturally found in the gut. :) It is said to help aid in digestion and keep "bad" bacteria in check. Acidophilus is another "friendly" bacteria that you might have heard of.
