Abstract: Effect of Probiotics on Teething Problems in Infants/Toddlers Objective: To evaluate the potential effects of maternal/infant intake of probiotics on teething problems (TPs) in infants/toddlers. Methodology: In the GUSTO (Growing Up in Singapore Towards healthy Outcomes) cohort study 1237 pregnant women were recruited from early pregnancy and their offspring followed up. At ages 6, 9, 12, 15 and 18 months questionnaires were used to ascertain maternal/infant probiotics intake and the incidence rate of TPs. Results: The trend has been observed that infant intake of probiotics at 9 month or 3 week proved beneficial in reducing TPs at 15 month in infants. Maternal probiotics has shown detrimental effect on TPs in infants/toddlers. Conclusion: Timing and type of probiotics intake may affect teething problems, and the effect may vary regarding different TPs.
