Default Probiotics for bottle babies

I have a two week old male blue eye Nigerian dwarf that hasn't had a bowl movement in almost 24 hours. I just got him yesterday. I need to know how much probiotics I should give him and how often. Thanks!

About the size of a large pea.

Should I mix it in his milk or just put it on my finger?

Before my bottle baby left his home, she gave him a bit of probios. She put it on her finger, opened his mouth, and stuck it right in. It can be a challenge but sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do.

I'd give it to him on your finger if its the paste type. The powder you can mix in the milk.

I'd give it once a day till he gets used to his new milk. It won't hurt him and will help him digest things he's nibbling on.
