The diverse variety of beneficial bacteria in ProBiota Infant helps support gastrointestinal and immune system health for children up to the age of 2 and is specially formulated to aid digestion and absorption of breast milk.
Probiotic supplements contain live, beneficial bacteria that promote proper digestion, support immune system function, aid in production of vitamins, and defend against harmful disease-causing bacteria. Normally, the human digestive tract is populated by hundreds of different strains of bacterial microorganisms important for healthy gastrointesinal and immune function.
This bacterial colonization of the GI tract usually begins at birth, and is critical for development of an infant's intestinal and immune system. However, this process can be disturbed by cesarean section delivery, hospitalization, formula feeding, and antibiotic use. Any of these can potentially lead to impaired immune function with allergic tendencies and increased susceptibility to infections. Probiota Infant Probtiotic contains select probiotics to restore microflora balance and support healthy gastrointestinal and immune system maturation in infants.
If your infant suffers from any of the following:

Dr. Ben Lynch, founder and Chief Medical Officer of Seeking Health, is a naturopathic physician. While majoring in Cell and Molecular biology at the University of Washington, Dr. Ben took a trip through the South Pacific and Southeast Asia that changed his outlook on traditional medicine, and his life.
During this trip, Dr. Ben hiked through the forests, mountains and coasts of Tasmania, worked a cattle ranch in the Outback of Australia, and volunteered with Mother Theresa in Calcutta. He lived in Fiji with a family having no electricity or plumbing, experienced the Himalayan Mountains of Northern India, worked a fruit orchard in New Zealand, and returned to America with an impression of a different form of medicine than he had ever experienced with his mainstream medical education.
This profound experience led Dr. Ben to Bastyr University, and he studied the Mind-Body Connection, Environmental Medicine, Functional Medicine, and Epigenetics.
Dr. Ben saw the huge need for people to obtain foundational nutrients, and Seeking Health was born. Without foundational nutrients, biochemical dysfunction occurs and causes symptoms. Doctor after doctor and person after person do not understand the absolute requirement for our bodies to have the tools to maintain function.
“If one supports their bodily systems, especially their digestion and mental health, with pure, highly absorbable, well-formulated nutrients, the ability to remain healthy and vital significantly increases. We want your foundation rock solid and we provide the tools to do so.”
-Dr. Ben Lynch, founder of Seeking Health

I have been giving ProBiota Infant to my 6 month old daughter for over a month now, and I have already seen a difference. Digestion seems much easier for her now. Also, she has had a bad case of cradle cap for months. I tried to soften it with oil and take it off when it would pop up, but it kept coming back. Now that I have been giving her the ProBiota Infant powder, though, I have noticed that it is going away without putting on oil and taking it off myself. It is truly a wonderful product.

Sorry to hear about your baby!
ProBiota Infant is made for infants so is considered safe for infants. Consider giving her 1/4 teaspoon in the evening. It's a powder, so you can mix it with a little yogurt or applesauce to feed it to her. Ideally, give her the probiotic after her final evening feeding. Balancing and supporting benefiical bacteria in the digestive tract is critical for many functions: immune, digestive, neurological, dermatological and others.
Definitely continue breastfeeding, as breastmilk is a natural laxative so it is actually helping with the constipation. Dehydration can cause constipation. Ensure your daughter is drinking water throughout the day, along with the breastmilk you offer her. Offer her water all day---in the car, at the store, with meals, between meals, a spillproof cup in the crib at night (cups with straws are often spillproof and you also avoid the "bottle" like effect cups with valves have), etc.
Soft veggies and beans are great finger foods for a 10 month old and effective for reducing constipation.
Please let me know if you have any other questions.
