Re: Declined antibiotic for Group B & regretted it?

Infant probiotics are supposed to help with colic, too. But only one strain has actually been tested. There is a risk of sepsis, though. It is small, but there.

Check around online, I've read many births where the parents definitely regretted their decision because their LO's didn't make it. Antibiotics aren't fun, and we don't use them unless absolutely needed, but IMO, this is one time when they are absolutely warranted. The scientific evidence is very strong in favor of them.
