Oligosaccharides is an indigestible fiber (prebiotic) found in breast milk (HMO) feeding the healthy bacteria in the intestine that is responsible for a healthy immune system and digestion. Breastfeeding a baby is the easiest form to improve the gut microbiome of your baby. Nonetheless, when feeding formula you don’t have to worry about your baby not getting the same nutrients.
Galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) derived from cow’s milk lactose are almost identical in their structure to HMO’s and improve your baby’s gut flora just as well - for a happy stomach. And mommies know, a better digestion means less fussiness and a better sleep schedule!
