Can anyone recommend a good probiotic for my son. I was gonna get one from the Health food store then my aunt said I shouldn't from their cause they aren't tested and that gerber made one. I'm not sure I trust gerber to not add a bunch of junk into it. Anyways any recommendations would be appreciated!!

I've had good results with Udo's.  I'm not sure if they would meet your aunt's criteria, but they work for us.

Used Udo's prior to having DD tested by an ND, at which point we learned the only one she tolerates and won't maker her GI issues worse is Ther-biotic by Klaire Labs, so that's what we use now.  Basically you want one that's been kept refrigerated for better potency which Udo's and Ther-biotic are, esp if you are browsing a health store or something like Whole Foods.

My family has been using Bio-k for years now. It's available at Whole Foods.

We used to use Udo's which we loved, but then DD2 came along and had a dairy sensitivity, we we switched the whole family to Klare Labs.

sassy, does your DD take the Klaire children's chewable or the Ther-biotic capsule that she swallows?

She takes the chewable but she can swallow capsules so I'm thinking of switching her after this bottle to get her on a higher dose without having her take multiple chewables.
