    Where can I buy Probiotics for babies?

    Does anyone have an idea where I can buy Probiotics for babies?? I bought some for myself from the health shop at Lyndhurst Terrace in Central, but they didn't have them for babies. Some websites say I could split open the capsule and let the baby suck on the powder. But others say this way the bacteria gets killed in the stomach itself before reaching where it should. Has anybody given Probiotics to their babies?? How did you give it to them??

    I gave my baby a children's liquid multi-vitamin supplement (with dosing instructions by body weight) I bought at the Health Food store in the States which also has a probiotic element to it. I would also be interested to learn where you can buy things like this--as well as any good--well-stocked Health Food stores in Hong Kong. As far as giving the supplement--it was liquid and flavored with natural juices so it had a berry scent and taste to it--my son wasn't wild about the flavor but I mixed it in with yogurt and fed it to him this way--after awhile he was used to it and liked it.

    I have a probiotic for babies but my dad sent it from the UK. We mix it with a tablespoon of cooled boiled water and give it to her from a spoon.
    I'll PM you the details

    I bought mine from IMI on Stanely Street. Here's the link for contact details: http://www.imi.com.hk/. It's a tasteless powder which is sprinkled onto food or into formula. I think they might have it at the Wellness Centre at 360 as well. The brand was Udo's Choice.
