Optibac Probiotics for Babies & Children Sachets can easily be mixed with your child's favourite Foods or Drinks. This supplement can be taken with Formula Milk when it is at room temperature, but not when warmed (as heat reduces the viability of natural bacteria.) For breastfed babies, powder can be applied to nipple or clean finger for baby to suckle.
Take as following, or as professionally directed:
- Infants from birth to 3 years: one sachet per day.
- Children 4 years to 12 years: one-to-two sachets per day as desired.

Adults & children should ideally drink plenty of water during a course of live cultures. Best taken with a meal, preferably with breakfast.
