Culturelle Kids vs. regular Culturelle
Which Culturelle do you give your child? I have been giving Maia Culturelle Kids but I'm about to run out. The only one that our local grocery chain carries is the regular adult Culturelle. I looked on the Culturelle website and it said to switch to the adult one when your child was either 100lbs or was experiencing tummy troubles. It sounded like it just might be a stronger version of the Culturelle Kids? Maia obviously has tummy troubles (reflux) or else I wouldn't be on this site. Am I OK to switch her to the regular one or should I order the Kids one online?

I only use the Kids version. My local Walgreens and Target carry it. I would stick with's dairy and wheat free and made for little ones.

i tried kids culturelle with emily and it seemed to do nothing. there as no difference. we also tried a course of Florastor with her and there was no difference as well. We still do not have any luck with probiotics controlling reflux. but we have had good luck with mitamins children's probiotics and a while capsule of adult acidophilis for intestinal GI maintenance, so far at least.

Culturelle Kids vs. Regular Culturelle
I'm new to the sight so I wasn't sure if you were able to find the Culturelle yet, but I purchased it at GNC (which was located inside our local mall). Not sure if you have a GNC in your area, but it was on sale and they allow for returns if they product doesn't work (as long as it's before 30 days).
Check with your
doctor first!
