For those of you who were beta strep positive and decided to get antibiotics during labor when did you start to give your LO probiotics?

Re: Beta strep and probiotics

i havent been group b positive, but i do give my babies lactose-free probiotics from the start. i rub the powder from a capsule on my nipple before nursing. my kids and i are all particularly vulnerable to yeast- as infants each one had episodes of thrush in their mouths which meant painful, red nipples for me- so i just do it as much as possible.

i would give it ASAP to help restore good bacteria and be on the safe side.
none on the boards, but feedback on LJ here:
