    I have recently started to give my 16 mo. old, Brody, and my 4 mo. old, Bella, plain low fat yogurt to try and help reduce their gas problems! I was just wondering if a specific type or brand is best and how much to actually give them?! Right now we just give them a few spoonfuls but I'd rather have a set amount they're supposed to have. Thanks for any information you can provide me with!

    I'm not an animal nutritionist or anything, but I give Beasley (who weighs about 53 lbs soaking wet) a rounded tablespoon of Dannon plain yogurt in his morning bowl. We feed a combo of Wellness Fish and Sweet Potato and home-cooked, so his gas isn't as bad as it could be, but the yogurt really does help keep the 'toxicity' at bay...:LOL:

    There are several threads in the feeding forums that talk about yogurt, and I'd imagine you could do some additional fact-finding that way. The only reason I use plain is because it has less sugar than the fruit on the bottom kind or other flavored yogurts. Compare the sugar levels between full-fat yogurt and 'fat free' yogurt - you'd be surprised how much sugar is actually in 'fat free' foods. I try to keep sugar at a minimum at my house. good luck!!
