    Yes, I'd give your LO probiotics as well. Culturelle makes a good one.

    Yes - you can mix probiotic powder in a little breastmilk and give it to baby using a medicine dropper.

    The Culturelle that I mentioned is for LOs. You just open the packet and mix it with cool/cold BM. If you want to use yours for your LO, I'm not sure. Here's a link http://www.culturelle.com/your_healt...relle_for_kids. The active cultures are in the billions and a particular type. If yours are similar, I don't see why you can't use the whole capsule.
