Probiotics for 13 month old

DS2 is going on his second round of antibiotics back to back for an ear infection that won't go away. I have not given him probiotics befor but am worried with him being on antibiotics for sol long. He does eat good yogurt daily but wondering if I need to give him more. What are your experiences/thoughts? Thanks!!

We use culturelle. They are little capsules and can open it up and dump the powder in any food he is eating. That's what my ped suggested when he was had a stomach bug.

I am not sure what brand we use. I got them at Whole Food. I just put it in my kids' food.

Our GI recommends Florastor. It outcompetes c diff, and is one of the few that can do that.

I don't have any brand recommendations, but just wanted to mention - read through the pamphlets with the probiotics to make sure you're timing them right with the antibiotics. This can be a bit of a schedule thing if the antibiotic is also one that needs to be timed with eating/empty stomach.

We use Florastor as well, they recently came out with a child's dose, but before that I just open a capsule (pull gently) and pour half in milk. Works great!
