Few quick questions.

What are your favorite brands of probiotics?

What is the best time of day to give a probiotic?

Okay, let me explain more. I know you moms know this.
Your just holding out!

I have Natures Way Primadophilus Childrens. Does this make it past the stomach acid? When during the day do I give it for it to be most effective.

Thank you
I want to do this right.

You might try running a search in this forum on probiotics - different probiotics are preferred depending on issue, age of child, allergies...

As for when, it helps to give with water, breastmilk, or food to dilute the stomach acid and help more of the probiotics survive.
