searching internet for reviewed products, thought i'd ask the mumsnet nation - any views?

not sure what your query is - antibiotics and probiotics are different things.

As antibiotics are obtained from medical establishments ( unless you do dodgy internet buying) and you can buy probiotics off the shelf - I guess you want probiotic recommendations?

It's a huge debate if probiotics work or not.

erring towards Vega Baby Probiotic Formula Fed (they also do breast fed version) - have used this company before and hopefully they are still as wholesome and sound as they were when they off-shooted from Solgar..if i remember correctly...

sorry if i was unclear - i need to give antibiotics to baby. i take probiotics at the same time when i take antibiotics so was looking for a version for baby. have found one but wanted to know if someone else had any experience. have found a trustworthy company that have proven track record so will go with Vega. thanks for replying x

there is not much point in taking probiotics at the same time as antibiotics. However it might be a good idea to take probiotics after the antibiotic coure is finished try this site

course no coure *

There's also a company called Optibac who do a baby/child powder.

I use this for one of my children who has a minor medical condition (doctor suggested trying it) and if we stop taking it then his symptoms return after a few days. So he's stuck with taking them now!

I've given bio-kult for kids to my 2 year old whilst on antibiotics as he was having terrible diarrhoea. I think it helped a little and back to normal once antibiotics had finished
