My son has Crohns--hes 20 mos old. Hes on sulfasalzine twice a day and has shown major improvements over the last 6 weeks so I know its working. I would like to start giving him probiotics. Are there online resources anyone knows of to point me toward what I should be doing?

first of all...

I had Ulcerative Colitis for 10 years (just had surgery in July to have my colon removed) and while it was no picnic...I can't imagine how hard it must be to have a child with IBD. I'll be praying for your little guy!

here is a website where parents of kids with IBD get together.

As far as probiotics go, you will probably get more info from the other parents...but I was on Primadophilous Rueteri (made by Natures Way) and I believe they also make a kids version.

That's great that he's doing better on the meds! I will keep you two in my thoughts!
