I started using the M9 drops in my daughters pouch however I'm not noticing a difference. How much do you guys use, the bottle says 4-8 drops but maybe that isn't enough?? also I'm guessing that every time you have to empty the pouch you have to put more in right, I guess I should have bought a smaller bottle for traveling.

I thought my bottle said 4 - 12 but anyway.. I put about 10 drops in and yes do it everytime I empty. Maybe you could buy a small empty travel bottle and just pour some in from the big bottle. :)

The hydrogen peroxide works a lot better for me than the M9 drops. I used to just squirt some in w/the M9, never measured, but how well it worked depended a lot on what I'd eaten.

thanks, I'm going to start putting more in. My daughter already has a lot of gas so I don't want to try the peroxide if it causes additional gas.

thanks again

     What bag is she using?    After my operation I used Hollister but they broke twice on me.   Actually, ripped at the seams!  I have been using the Sensura Coloplast ones for the last several months.  For the life of me, I have no idea why they even put filters on them because the poop gets on the filter almost immediately.
     For odor control I find the 3% hydrogen peroxide works the best.  I place about a capful in my bag after rinsing it out with just water.  Sometimes I use the Adapt or M9 drops.  I don't really measure the drops, just squirt some in.
