Has anyone found probiotics that are safe for a dairy allergy? Every single brand and version that I have read very clearly states that it is not safe for a milk allergy. DD was sick with upper respiratory infections all last winter and this winter looks like it is going to be more of the same. Many of my friends keep telling me I need to get her on probiotics, but the more labels I read I can't help but wonder if the very nature of them means they have all come in contact with dairy. Any suggestions?

We found this too... as most probiotics are dairy-based. We did some research and found some foods that contain natural probiotics: miso and sauerkraut. Miso soup is a great meal for sick kids (and adults, in our case), and they get plenty of fluids too. Just be sure to stir in the miso after the water stops boiling or the high heat will kill the good probiotics.

Otherwise, we found Good Belly brand was dairy-free (at the time, may have to check if things have changed) but never found it at the stores. Maybe it's an online order or specialty foods store type thing?

Sorry, not much help... hope your little one feels better soon!

Check out http://www.sisu.com/sisu/products/produ ... 003&id=227
The Sisu brand is dairy free and we use this product for our milk allergy son. Hopefully by now you have found a brand but if not check this out.

Thanks so much Weav3!!! I found a fermented rice drink, but it was so nasty that I couldn't get her to drink it. These look like a much better option!
