We use the Jarrow Formula powder for the whole family & from what I understand its okay to use half as much for children but not sure how young.
This is the one we have & you can sprinkle it on food or mix in drink http://www.jarrow.com/product.php?prodid=144

They make some specifically for kids. Try their site http://www.jarrow.com/category.php?catid=25

We have some kind that I bought at Akins. It's specifically for infants (maybe kids too) the brand name is Solar Ray I think. It's worked great for Milo.

We don't vaccinate, we kept our sons intact, we use cloth diapers, we co-sleep, we extended RF, we breastfeed, but we watch too much tv and I totally dig plastic! Everyone has their issues, lol.

We use Jarrow as well. We have been using it since ds1 was 2. Jarrow makes a baby formula for little ones, but when ds2 was having yeast problems our DAN! Dr told me one capsul would be fine for him. Didn't cause him any problems. Ds2 is 5.5yrs and 35lbs and takes 4 capsuls a day, but he has severe intestinal problems, most kids his age and size would only take 1-2 a day. You can also buy Kefir at some natural food stores in a kids drink form. I can't get ds1 to take it, but ds2 likes it. It has lots of healthy cultures as well.

Re: Which probiotic for kids

we use a chewable one called KiddiFlora. It was recommended to us when we were seeing a natropath doctor last summer.

We use a powdered form call "babydophilus" that I bought from an apothecary. Just add it to their food and that's it!
