Just wondering does anybody here take probiotics? Anybody giving probiotics to baby?


Jacob is on an antibiotic so his dr thought it would be a good idea for both me and him to take a probiotic to put back some of the good bacteria into his system. I am terrified that we might get thrush again and she is hoping that this will help prevent the thrush.

I take a probiotic whenever I take antibiotics. I find it helps prevent yeast infections, which is pretty much what thrush is, right? I hope it helps both of you!

Yes Carolyn, Thrush is basically a yeast infection that Jacob got in his mouth after taking antibiotics before so I'm hoping that the probiotic will keep the thrush away this time.

My son takes them on occasion, he is 4 and struggled with constipation, but after being on those for about 3 months, he has been regular ever since!

Both of my kids are on probiotics, every night before bath time. I don't know if they help but they can't hurt!
