Hi ladies!<br><br>
Ds is 9 mos. and I've been on a dairy/soy elim. diet for 6 wks now -- it has helped decrease/rid his stools of mucus and greenish color, but he is still sleeping very poorly and I'm wanting to try giving him probiotics, thinking maybe he might still have yeast systemically from a bout of thrush we had for 3 mos (Nov. - Jan.).<br><br>
Can anyone recommend a good high-quality probiotic for infants/babies that you used and saw good results with? Preferably a liquid (although I know I can dissolve powders in water too).<br><br>
TIA!

Pharmax HLC Neonate is the best I've tried. It's a powder but dissolves easily in liquid. DS' yeast cleared up in a matter of days as soon as I started giving him 1/4 t. morning and night. He's 8 months, btw.<br><br>
You can order it off of the Pharmax website. It's a little more expensive, but totally worth it. I now have DS on solaray, which is also good, but I use that for more of a maintenance dose. The Pharmax stuff is great for problem yeast.<br><br>
Good luck!<br><br>

Thanks OA!<br><br>
I checked out the Pharmax you suggested and it looks like what I'm looking for.<br><br>
Thank you!

please read the ingredients before you try them. most probiotics contain dairy and this can make things a lot worse instead of better for babies sensitive to milk.

My DD is also very dairy/soy sensitive. We've had excellent results with <a href="http://www.naturesway.com/NaturesWay/productdetail.aspx?productid=6881" target="_blank">Nature's Way</a>. It does warn "May contain a minimal residual amount of dairy or soy protein" but it must be very minute because DD has not reacted at all. We started her on this at 4 weeks old.<br><br>
Good luck!

the two best dairy-free probiotics out there, i think, are solaray and natren. the natren is harder to find.<br><br>
and you are looking specifically for b. infantis-- that's the strain you want.<br><br>
probiotics are awesome. good thinking!
