Probiotics

Have I told ya'll about probiotics? Oh my, what a LIFE SAVER!
We've been on oral antibiotics for over 5 weeks now because of the ear infections. I'm hoping, if all goes well, we will say goodbye to them on Sunday for a LONG LONG TIME! But in the meanwhile, we have had on and off serious tummy upsets. Enter, PROBIOTICS! There is a particular product that we have chosen, and I cannot explain my gratitude for the help it has given our child.
Tell everyone you know, when you start antibiotics with a little one, start this stuff. We put half a packet into a drink twice per day if Baby Man is at school. He weighs 22.5 pounds now. If in doubt, ask your pediatrician. At home, we usually feed him yogurt and about half a packet per day. Key is not to get it warm because it will kill all the happy bacteria in the mixture. I've tasted, or not tasted, it in beverages, and its colorless, odorless, and fully dissolves in liquid.
Had to pass on the greatest of Mommy tips I have!
