products / formula / stage 1 (birth+) / Good Start® Probiotic

Some probiotics like B. lactis are part of a family called Bifidobacteria§¥. Breast milk contains Bifidobacteria
– the most prevalent type of naturally occurring cultures found in the digestive system of breast-fed babies.

That’s why we created Good Start® Probiotic, our closest formula to breast milk – and the first infant
formula in Canada to contain Bifidobacteria B. lactis. Probiotic B. lactiscontributes to your baby’s healthy digestive tract flora. And, can help keep your baby’s tummy healthy and happy.

Nothing else is breast milk. But for moms who can’t breastfeed or choose to supplement, nothing else is Good Start® Probiotic†.

 

Preparation instructions:
Nestlé® Good Start® Probiotic must not be warmed above 40°C (100°F) as it will compromise the B. lactis.
To prepare, pour desired amount of cooled, but previously boiled, water into a sterilized bottle. Add
formula powder, shake well and warm to body temperature before feeding. Please see label for complete
preparation instructions.
