    Raw unfiltered Apple cider vinegar is a great tonic. And I use with my babies. Use 1 TBSP per gallon. Probiotics are also good too but don't mix the two.

    As in mix the two do you mean the two mixtures together or starting one then another.

    I meant mixing them in the same bowl. But I would alternate them every day to few days or try one then the other.
