How important is it to keep the drops in the fridge? I forgot them out for a few days - at least it's winter and not very hot - and now I don't know if I should buy a new bottle???? Should I use it daily like a normal vitamin or only while she's was on antibiotics?

Which one do you prefer Reply to Ilonka Posted by: NJK | 2006/06/28 It's a probiotic so it should be kept in the fridge - like yogurt. I'm not sure if you should replace it (seeing that it's so cold) - ask your pharmacist. Use it while your child is on anti-biotics. Reply to NJK Posted by: Jessica | 2006/06/28 Reuteri is a pro-biotic, it needs to be placed inside a fridge because it contains life cultures, basically if it was placed outside it won't grow (died) so need to get new ones, It is expensive, but I give it to Jana every morning, it it good bacteria that lives inside the colon. It helped Jana when she got the rota-virus not to have a watery tummy, just vomited.Breast fed babies get the good bacteria from their mommies, bottle-fed babies need to get it in some other wayVery good stuff! Reply to Jessica Posted by: MOM2_1 | 2006/06/28 Hi Tash!!Don't know about the "getting a new bottle" question, but as far as I know, you should only use it till her tummy is better.It worked wonders for my little one!! I gave it to him an hour before each time I had to give him antibiotics and then when his antibiotics where finished, I kept giving the drops to him once in the morning and once in the evening till his tummy was 100%Love those drops!!! They clear up a tummy quickly.Ta,xxx Reply to MOM2_1 Want to comment? Your name (optional) Your comment To prevent spam please solve this simple math problem: × Thanks for commenting!
