Any probiotic recommendations?

Hi - just wondering if anyone could give me any recommendations for SPECIFIC probiotics? DS has been sick and on antibiotics for double ear infection (AGAIN!!) and I am sure the ENT is going to recommend a month of antibiotic (Augmentin) to fully clear it - the antibiotics in the past have given him serious diarrhea (TMI - sorry...) and this last course has also given him a yeast infection poor baby... any help would be MOST appreciated! thanks, Mamas!

Re: Any probiotic recommendations?

I recently started my ds on Flora Baby when he got rotovirus. It seemed to help a lot and I've continued to give it to him a daily basis since he's recovered from the virus. I just mix it in his milk in the morning, and he even asks for it now.

I haven't used any other probiotics in the past, so I don't have anything to judge it on, but I've been happy with this product (although it seems a little pricey).

I usually rotate out brands. Right now we are using Jarrows.

Have you tried a chiro? My ds went through a 3 month circle with ear infections and tons of RX(that didnt work). I finally had enough and took him to the chiro. Within 3 weeks the infection was gone. We ended up keeping the ENT apt just to have his hearing checked(which ended up being fine) and havnt had an ear infection since.

Thanks, ladies! will look for these! the Rx have been clearing the infections - but they recur, ENT suspects silent reflux (minor) just enough to cause ear issues as he doesn't spit up
