Probiotic Recommendations?

I am in search of a good affordable probiotic for my 5-1/2 and almost 3-year-old kiddos. My 3 month old is currently on FloraBaby, but I'd love something that I could use for all three kids! I will have to order online since I have seen nothing available locally. Any recommendations? Thanks!

Re: Probiotic Recommendations?

If y'all do dairy, try kefir smoothies. Then they can get their probiotics and fruit as well. We even add coconut oil to ours. You can add protein powder, if needed, or ground flax seed, or even oats, though we just stick to coconut oil, kefir, and fruit.

Very good suggestion. We do a lot of kefir smoothies and use Flax seed oil, kefir and fruit, sometimes greens as well. Otherwise I like Cultrelle and I started using Jaro Baby for the youngest who is still EBF. I think they make one that both of your could probably take.

We just do kefir. I don't see a reason to add other supplements, and I think too many can overload someone, especially kids.
