In answer to the question in your title ... Yes, I've taken Custom Probiotics for almost 2 years. I originally took them after having my 7th and 8th gastrointestinal infections (H. Pylori and Dientamoeba Fragilis) in a 4 year period. Everytime I had to take antibiotics to cope with intestinal infections, I knocked out my good bacteria. So I needed to get some really high dose probiotics into my gut quickly. Custom Probiotics' Adult CP-1 formula did the trick for me. For 6 months I took 100 billion IU (2 capsules) daily. My next stool test showed normal amounts of good bacteria in my gut. I haven't any more gut infections since I started taking Custom Probiotics. (I still take one 50 billion capsule daily.)

Sorry, I don't have any kids (thanks to undiagnosed celiac disease and Hashimoto's when I was younger). So I can't recommend a specific Custom Probiotics formula for kids. However, I do know the person who answers the phone at CP is very helpful and can recommend a probiotic formula suitable for your child.

Same here--I used them for a few months post- DX. I had no good bacteria in my gut apparently--found that out through testing--and these Custom Probiotics did the trick. Because they are powdered, you can start at a small dose and work your way up. I hit them heavy myself to get my gut flora balanced. I thought they were great! I had severe GI burning from mouth to rectum and I could not keep any food in at all. They calmed everything right down.

I cannot say personally how they work for children (as I could not have any either--thank you, Celiac :angry: ) but I know they are a good product.

The man who owns the company spoke to me at great length and was very helpful.

They will not harm your child and they have a formula made just for kids and they are lactose free --as I recall.

Give them a call! :)
