I would most likely use the chewable tablets
Probiotics are live active cultures thought to promote intestinal health. They're found in a variety of foods, most notably traditional yogurts, but kids often miss out on their benefits due to persnickety tastes or food allergies. BioGaia offers a range of probiotic products that are specifically designed for kids in easy-to-take forms like straws, chewable tablets and drops that can be mixed into bottles or food.
A while back, Roo woke up in the middle of the night with an upset stomach. After she got everything out, I gave her one of the BioGaia probiotic chewable tablets. I'm not sure what caused her vomiting but she was fine by the time she woke up in the morning. She is notoriously anti-vitamin and healthy stuff, in general, but she has asked to for the "tummy pills" a couple of times since. Jasper sometimes has some, uh, runny diapers and I've substituted the BioGaia probiotic straws in his juice box without detection. It seems to help. We haven't had a chance to try the BioGaia probiotic drops yet but studies have shown colicky babies using them daily had significantly reduced crying time after one week and a continued reduction after four weeks, which I imagine was a lifesaver for their parents! My kiddos were cranky enough without the colic…
