just a rule of thumb here... anytime people take antibiotics (which kills both bad and good bacteria), they need to follow-up with a week of Probiotics to replace all the good bacteria that is part of a healthy immune system. If you don't put the good stuff back in, you're gonna get sick in 4-6 weeks.

I did that a few years ago with an ear infection. It just would NEVER get better by the end of the summer I had lost a small percentage of hearing in my right ear.

Good point!  When Brady's on antibiotics, which happens ALL the time, he's ALWAYS put on a probiotic at the same time and it lasts longer than the antibiotic so as to replace those good bacteria.  His doctor has always had him do that.  Thanks for sharing that with everyone mama!

I'm sorry. We are battling a cold here, but don't get anything for it, since there usually isnt anything.
