I am wondering about starting them to help with our immunity during this season- especially for my ydd.
or am i wasting $ and time???

They'll help :) I make my own Kefir water which is LOADED with probiotics and I give it to Spencer too - just not as much as I drink.
You need to go slowly at first because if you drink a ton right away you'll have a tummy ache.

I do and so does ds. I give him the same amount as I take as per my Naturopath. I mix it in some yogurt. He is having some health issues, so I can't really say if it is helping or not

I only use probiotics when myself or someone in my family is on antibiotics.

I use them and so does my son. We started taking them last fall when we were continually sick with every bug around and they seem to have helped a lot. When either of us starts to get a symptom of something- a cold or sore throat, etc- it seems to be very mild and then is gone before it turns into anything major. I swear by probiotics now and think they are a great investment- more than just a multivitamin.

I might consider taking probiotics throughout the winter this year since it seems to work well for you.
