    Default Probiotic

    So I got put on antibiotics becuase it seems I have the early stages of Mastitis.. no fun.. first time I've had it and not very happy right now. I have read that probiotics are good to try to avoid getting thrush. I went to Whole Foods and got one.. the refrigerated kind.. they didn't have culturelle which is what I was looking for. Does the brand matter? are all probiotics safe while BF? I got acidophilus with the brand name American Health...

    Thanks in advance.. I'll do anything to avoid thrush!!!

    I don't think there is a big issue with unsafe brands of probiotics. I would feel comfortable taking something sold at Whole Foods. They probably screen their product lines pretty carefully, kwim?
    Hope you are feeling better soon!
