Sick kids and bacteria bouncers (Bio-Kult giveaway)

*Sponsored Post*

Nothing makes my heart sink and stomach turn more than waking to that sound in the night. The bleurggh wahhhh noise. The sound of a young child puking. There are a few things that I can guarantee you at this point:

  • You will not be sleeping much for the rest of this night
  • You will be doing a lot of washing
  • You will want to help your little, but there isn’t much to do but ride it out

Equally heart-sinking are the coughing and hacking noises, followed by inconsolable crying, followed by panicked trips to the doctor or even the hospital, to end up with the dreaded antibiotics for tonsillitis or some other nasty infection.

Luckily, the worst of these bugs usually passes with a bit of perseverance and a lot of wet wipes. But often the dregs of the illness linger for quite some time. After a tummy bug, it takes a while for my kids’ to be back to normal, and often a course of antibiotics can fix the infection but bring on some unfortunate tummy-related symptoms.

At these times, I often load my kids up with as much yogurt as they can eat, because I think the “good bacteria” in the yogurt will help their tiny guts get back to normal faster. But recently I found out about a product that I can use instead of yogurt, that gets the job done faster and more thoroughly. Enter Bio-Kult Infantis.

Does Bio-Kult actually work?

Bio-Kult Infantis is a scientifically developed, advanced formula for babies, toddlers and young children, which contains 7 strains of probiotic “good” bacteria. In the party that is your child’s digestive system, these are like the really burly, yet handsome, bouncers. They kick out the baddies (the bad bacteria) and stop new baddies getting in. I’m a sucker for the Vin Diesel look. But I digress…

The specific blend of good bacteria in Bio-Kult has demonstrated positive outcomes in a number of clinical trials, for example in reducing diarrhoea from gastroenteritis, among other things. Look, I have some charts and graphs:

Bio-Kult’s literature is full of footnotes citing an ever-growing, peer-reviewed, body of published research on the efficacy of probiotics in improving or even preventing a number of conditions. And they can also provide impressive documentation on their own research into the product’s efficacy.

So when should I use Bio-Kult?

As you can tell by my introduction to this post, I would be most likely to give this product to my kids for a boost after they’ve been ill, especially if they’ve been on antibiotics, which can kill good bacteria as well as bad. But there are lots of other uses:

  • It can be given regularly as a preventative boost to the immune system, and has been shown the improve conditions such as eczema in young children.
  • It can be given for an immune boost when you know your little one is going to face a challenge, such as when going on holiday or starting nursery.
  • Studies have also shown that Bio-Kult Infantis can help with cases of colic in infants.

The product has been proven safe for use with children from birth, but if you have any doubts, of course you should check with your GP.

  4. Illnesses is something that I am really worried about (I’m expecting my first child). This seems like a really good product to support youngsters during illness.

  5. Look I have some charts and graphs! Lol! This is something I would be interested in trying, there is a lot to be said about gut health and I know it’s a big topic among lots of American mommy bloggers at the moment. How do you administer it? Is it a liquid? #KCACOLS

  6. This sounds like a good little boost for the kids when they have been poorly. You are so right what you say about hearing the first sign of them being ill….it’s going to be a long night, normally full of worry too. Anything that can help is good as far as I’m concerned. Great giveaway too:)
    Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next time

  7. It has never crossed my mind that antibiotics would kill good bacteria. Definitely one to think about in the future for all ages.

  8. Never thought about using something like this before but it makes sense. My son is almost 3 abd will be starting nursery soon so I suppose he will get introduced to lots of new germs all at once.

  12. I totally agree – nothing worse than the sound of vomiting child – at any time, but especially in the middle of the night!

    Those graphs were really interesting; I’ve always been a bit sceptical of that type of product but Bio-Kult certainly seems to work!
