probiotics
Anyone currently using or used probiotics with their los? If so, what brand? Nathan has had diarrhea for days now and also a fungal infection in the diaper area. We had a hard time with thrush with him as an infant. He is usually willing to eat yogurt but I was also thinking of a probiotic.

This is our dd, Alessandra. Dx with GER 10/07. Ran the gamut with meds and now done with them (crossed fingers). Using magnesium, probiotics and prebiotic supplements. With the exception of teething and general sassy attitude, all is well now. They really CAN grow out of it!
We use the Klaire Labs type from www.protherainc.com They have an infant formula called TherBiotic. The general stuff from the drugstore is okay, but usually not as potent.

Zack born 09/28/07 @ 31 weeks. Dx silent reflux @ 6 mo. Now not so silent. Switched to Elecare @ 9 mo. On Prevacid 15mg 1x daily. Looking to stop the puke and gain some lbs.
Puke stopped about 24 months and he's learning to eat...very slowly.
Still on prevacid and periactin.
http://www.udoerasmus.com/products/probiotics_infants_en.htm There is the one we have been using...it's a powder you sprinkle a half teaspoon into one bottle of formula per day. So far so good...it's only been a week. It was 17 bucks. Good luck!

Mom to Ian, 3/1/07
Used Zantac - 1.0 ml twice a day
Weaned at 1 year
Back on Zantac at 15 months
We have had good luck with FAGE. It's a greek style yogurt that I get at Trader Joe's. (Not sure if you have that where you are). It has different active cultures than the yogurts I find in my regular grocery store. Whenever I have tried to switch to another yogurt, Ian's little bum would get really red. It's worth a try...
Check with your
doctor first!
