Has anyone ever used kirkman's bifido complex advanced formula w/ success? My LO's having issues with mucus in her stool, has been really fussy, gassy, and hiccupy, for about 3 weeks now (she is 4 weeks old) . She also has a red ring around her anus :(   I've eliminated dairy since the issue started, still no improvement. So i started her on this probiotic 2 nights ago, starting off with a very small amount because i don't want her to have too much of a bad reaction. Someone tell me they've used this with a positive outcome! And if not, can anyone reccommend a probiotic that WORKS that is also gluten / dairy/ soy / corn / yeast (hypoallergenic) free?!


Drs also suspect she has an issue with thrush/yeast because there is a white coating on her tongue.

Yes, Kirkman's is great, as is Custom Probiotics (CP is very expensive upfront but way cheaper per dose because it is very concentrated).

We've been very happy with kirkman's bifido...started when he was a babe (can't remember how old) Noticed a bigger improvement when he was a toddler though (with consistency of poops) - I'm sure there were many factors for that though.
