    Re: Yakult

    baby should not take yakult...too sweet!!

    but e probiotics is good for babies too...so you can either make your own yogurt or buy plain yogurt n mix with baby's juice

    i make my own breastmilk yogurt

    Re: Yakult

    Our family doctors say NONO to both Yakult and Ribena.. Induce cough and phelgm..

    We kept the above 2 out till they are abv 3.. Now also occasional too.. My son kept asking why his classmates have Yakult for snack time in school but why he cannot..

    Re: Yakult

    hmm.. well, for me both my in-laws & me got give my daughters of 2yrs 7months drink yakult & ribena since quite young but not too sure when(forgotten ).. so far, everything's still good *touchwood * nothing happen at all .. my younger daughter of 1yr 1month got drink ribena lehz.. both of them still as healthy & seldom really sick .. still as strong.. heex~ i tink it's depending more on individual & e immune system if they are able to take it anot bahz.. =)

    Re: Yakult

    oOps!!~ well, what i actually mean is that i gOt give them drink Yakult & Ribena before they even turn 1year old when they are still a babies. i think was about 6mths after when they can eat & drink anything onwards ..i also give them once in awhile not always or that frequent of coz.. like what xiaodaisy has say once in awhile can help e digestive system.

    Cyn cyn, i am one of those 'goodness' mummies who gave my boy yakult.
    Some family docs discourage, some docs said can. It is up to individual to take their doc's advise as what is deem comfortable/acceptable to them. If you are not comfortable giving and have so much doubts, by all means DO NOT give it to your baby. Period.

    Re: Yakult

    If the child can take it with no side effects then I guess it's ok, just make ribena more diluted or take yakult with less sugar. I have not given Ethan any as yet. But sometimes if the baby is not taking as much fluids as they should, worried parents may turn to yakult or ribena.

    Btw, cyn, how did you get the frames for your pics? From your handphone?

    Re: Yakult

    my sis in law, who works in bio nutrition (dont know the exact term), told us it was ok to give a little at the 6mth mark once solids have been introduced. Obviously, dont't feed baby the whole bottle... but a little won't hurt and may help them get used to digesting solids.

    i tink what your sister In law mean it is probiotics r ok, but honestly yakult is too sweet...

    a nutritionist/dietician will tell you not to give any artificially sweetened drinks to kids under 18mths....

    for me i support giving probiotics, but not necessary must give yakult...can give yogurt also....n you can buy plain yogurt, just fresh fruit purees to flavor e yogurt naturally....

    Re: Yakult

    no.. she meant Yakult/Vitagen... cos that's what the older kids were drinking too...


    my kids are all sugar addicts... so you may want to hold off the sweet drinks...

    Re: Yakult

    I'll never give yakult or vitagen.. though it's advertised as good for digestion. I'll rather give probiotics in it's powdered form or buy plain yogurt.

    Seriously there are too much sugar in yakult / vitagen. Even my GP ask me (an adult) not to drink it.
