    My kids are older but when they were younger and got sick enough for ABs, their diet usually took a downward turn so the signs were stinky, runny bowel movements and gas and rumbling tummies or complaints of "squishy" tummies. As they got better, I found the probiotics helped clear them up more quickly while their diet took a bit longer to get back to normal. Firmer BMs, less gas and less "squishy" tummies also meant they went back to a normal diet pretty easily. I don't use probiotics routinely when they are well as they are both good eaters.

    Default Probiotics for toddler

    I regularly give my daughter either homemade sauerkraut mixed into mash potatoes. Or some homemade milk kefir mixed into a milkshake/smoothie.

    Sauerkraut is super simple to make- there are heaps of recipes on Google. The starter culture for milk kefir can be bought from health food shops. It's in a small blue box.

    Both are full of probiotics and I feel like they are the 'safer' option for kids (and adults) because they are natural.
