This week. Brittany is joined by pediatrician, best-selling author, and medical correspondent, Dr. Tanya Altmann to chat all about infant gut health. To start, Dr. Tanya shares her background and focus in preventative health, nutrition, and sleep. She discusses signs of newborn gut deficiency in babies, what to ask your pediatrician if you see those signs, and steps parents can take to protect their baby's gut microbiome. They get into some practical nutrition tips, common allergies in babies, and how to choose the right probiotic (and what isn't so important when looking for one). Plus, they chat about how to keep children as healthy as possible going into the flu season and whether or not we should expect to see a rise in other illnesses. They wrap with a discussion all about solids, including when to start. weaning from breastfeeding, and what foods are most appropriate when transitioning.
