Someone touched on this before awhile ago, but I wanted to get any other opinions.
I've given my dd probiotics since she was 4 months; she's now 11 months. I have a history of asthma and allergies, and from my research, I've ascertained that probiotics and healthy flora in the gut can be good for the immune system, especially for those who have an inherited disposition for allergies.
Trouble is, my dd's always constipated. It goes away when I take her off the probiotics. Yet everything you read suggest that probiotics relieve constipation instead of cause it. What do you think? I'd really like to give them to her to help minimize her risk of inheriting bad allergies and asthma, but I don't want her to be in pain either. It's a tough call. I was just looking for other experiences.
