Probiotics

Does anyone have recommendations for a good probiotic? I'd like to start my DS on them. TIA!

Re: Probiotics

I'm curious too. My DS is almost 10 months.

Re: Probiotics

DS and DD both take the Nature's Way Primadophilus for Kids.

Make sure that you always purchase them somewhere that keeps them refridgerated. If you order online, be sure they ship with ice packs.

Re: Probiotics

kefir - if you can get grains, it's cheap (only the cost of the milk). Mix with yogurt or put in smoothies, it's the best probiotic you can get. It's stopped stomach bugs instantly in our house and we've all been WAY less sick since adding it to our diet over a year ago.

We use this:

It's dairy free, which my little one needs.

Re: Probiotics

BioKult is supposed to be a good one.

Re: Probiotics

Is it possible to give probiotics to a breastfed not quite 2 month old? How?

Re: Probiotics

I also just use a kefir drink or yogurt with probiotics in it. Yum.
