My kids love them!
March 4, 2013
My daughter has a sensitive tummy, and especially with regard to dairy. I restrict her dairy at home, but I leave it up to her to decide what she consumes outside of the house, knowing full well that dairy can make her tummy hurt. Lately, she'd been complaining about tummyaches, in spite of not having a lot of exposure to dairy, and I wondered if maybe the overindulgence of sweets and milk products over Valentine's Day didn't stress her tummy out just a little too much. On the advice of a friend, I purchased Buddy Bear Probiotics.
I was pleased to see that the bottle comes with 60 tablets - that's a 1 month supply for my family, as I have two children. After school that day, I handed them each a tablet with their snack. When they asked what it was, I simply told them it was to support their tummies & digestive systems. I figured if they wanted to know more, they would ask.
One week later, they have been the ones to remind me that they need their Buddy Bears, and the other day, my son, knowing he was going to be exposed to a lot less-than-healthful options that day, asked for his in the morning. He had noticed the results and pieced together just what kind of support these probiotics were going to give. My daughter's tummyaches are gone, as well. And her appetite is back, in a fierce way.
A little about the tablets themselves: they are about the diameter of a dime, chewable, and according to my daughter, they taste like orange yogurt. (They smell like it, too). There have been absolutely no complaints so far.
Pros:It's affordable, clearly it works, both of my children love it and ask for it.
Cons:That I don't have a neverending supply, and I will have to buy more eventually.
