Why prebiotics is so important for small kids and infants , apart from mother's milk what else can be given to infants which is rich in prebiotics ? Does any formula milk is rich in prebiotics ?

Mother's milk is enough.

Prebiotics is a rare nutrient which is found only in bm ..helps in enhancing gut health and building strong immune system thereby protecting baby from any infection. You may discuss with your pediatrician for fm that contains PREBIOTICS..Btw my sis gives APTAMIL to her lil one .. I heard that aptamil also contains prebiotics.

Prebiotics are essential for babies and infants as they promote healthy gut and builds up their immunity as well.
Mother's milk contains prebiotics that is why it is the best for babies.
Some formula milk also has it like Aptamil. My friend was recommended Aptamil by her doc.
