Can I give my 9week old baby probiotics on a daily basis?

Thanks for the replies on my previous question. I have since then change her formula and is now giving Novalac. She is sleeping much better, we are on a 3 - 4hour cycle. I think she remained hungry on the previous formula S26 Gold. However, she now from time to time struggles with constipation and to help her along I give her a sachet of Probiotics in her first bottle of the day. Does anyone knows whether this is fine and whether I can continue doing it on a daily basis? Apart from this she is a bundle of joy! :-)

Thanks Holly. I should have mentioned however that it was suggested to me by one of the breastfeeding clinic medical staff and it is for infants. I was just unsure whether it is ok to continue on a daily basis as she is doing very well on it. No harm in contacting my dr as well though. :-)

well i would consult a doctor about that.... i don't know if this would harm her or not... this seems rather young to me to start on anything other than breast milk or formula....
