I have a sick child napping on the couch right now. She was up half the night with tummy troubles. This morning we went to the doctor and she recommended probiotics, so off we went to Target to grab some. The pharmacist was very helpful and recommended Florastor for kids, which is a yeast probiotic. After further chatting with the pharmacist, she recommended probiotics for me too --specifically Lactobacillus acidophilus, a bacteria as opposed to a yeast (the yeast probiotic was really expensive!). She says that she takes it herself and feels it improves her immune system -- quite important since she deals with sick people all the time. It also is supposed to aid in digestion and such.
So, Maddie and I have each taken our first dose and I'm really hoping it will help her out since she's been dealing with this off and on for a few weeks now.
Anyone out there have any experience with probiotics? I'm very curious to hear about your experiences, and to get your advice on the subject.
