DS2 on antibiotics. He is 13 months. Is he old enough for probiotics drinks or is there something else I can give him to replace his 'friendly bacteria'? Nothing too expensive and something easy to get hold of.

Sorry have no experience of them - do they really help if you're on antibiotics?

No idea!!! I was presuming so cos antibiotics strip your body of ALL bacteria good and bad, so I presumed replacing the good bacertia was a good idea but wasnt sure how to do it!
