Want to enhance your child’s health, vitality, immune and digestive strength?

Colostrum is nature’s first food for every newborn’s immune system. It is a unique food that provides the immune system with the information and the equipment of how to function well and how to function better. This means that over time, colostrum has the ability to not only help the immune system respond more dynamically to any acute challenge in the short term, but in the long run is able to improve and strengthen immune function for the future.

Probiotics, also known as the “friendly” bacteria, are good bacteria that are normally present in the intestinal system and are essential to maintain a healthy digestive and immune system. Probiotics help metabolise and absorb vitamins and minerals as well as protect against problematic bacteria, yeast and parasites in the small and large intestines.

ChildLife® Probiotics with Colostrum provides nature’s ultimate formula for enhancing a child’s health, vitality, immune and digestive strength, and is the only product that combines:

  • Probiotics – First, the proprietary Probiotic Blend is the ideal balance to help support healthy intestinal function
  • Colostrum – Second, the naturally harvested colostrum powder for baby provides a full spectrum of immune factors and boosters
  • Prebiotics – Third, prebiotics support the growth of probiotics to maintain healthy digestion and immune function

ChildLife® uses the finest bovine colostrum and only from the first and second milkings after calving, which are the richest in immunoglobulins, growth factors, protein and peptides. Contains milk proteins.

For babies, ChildLife® Probiotics with Colostrum can be added to formula. For children, it can be easily dissolved in liquid or straight in the mouth with saliva.

    Great product! My poor wee boy has had many courses of antibiotics over the past 6 months due to an ongoing health issue & his tummy hasn’t been very settled as a result. I was also aware that his good gut bacteria was very minimal. Wasn’t very easy to mix into formula, required a really good shake, which wasn’t ideal as it created bubbles in his milk, but he didn’t notice it at all once mixed in. His tummy seems more settled & it could be a coincidence, but we’ve managed a whole five weeks without antibiotics which is massive for us, it’s usually only two or three weeks.

    I have been putting a teaspoon each morning and arvo in my girls yoghurt.
    It mixes well and doesn’t effect the taste.
    As of yet have not noticed any difference in her health. But I no it will be helping

    Thanks so much for choosing us to test this product. We didn’t have much success with this one, unfortunately, twin 2-year-olds with funny tummies, I tried it in water which one drank and the other downright refused, I wondered what all the fuss was about (normally they are gobble guts and eat or drink anything!) So I tried it myself, lets say I forced myself to drink it….. product works well but the taste is just gross, I guess its the milky colostrum that you can’t get away from. I will try mixing into yogurt and formula and see how we go – smoothies they will suck this down in as it will be thoroughly disguised, but anything else so far its a no go.

    I mixed it in with my daughter night time bottle and she had no issues taking it, it mixed well with the formula. She did get slightly constipated at the start but resolved itself after a few days. I got sick and she didn’t which was great.

    Thanks for selecting me and Sorry for late review.
    Have tried mixing in my baby’s formula but it didnt mix well. Then i tried mixing in yogurt but my baby noticed something is there. But my older one didn’t mind having it at the same time. So may be its just i need to figure out which food it can mix well.. thanks anyway looks great probiotics for babies..

    I was looking forward to trying this with my just turned 5yo who can be a fussy eater especially when it comes to vegetables! She was keen to try it and initially we tried dissolving in water but found this didn’t really work so well and it just added a vague sweetness that all my kids weren’t keen on. So next we tried with breakfast and this was going well for a couple of days until she decided she didn’t like the taste anymore!
    The most successful method was mixing it into a smoothie where it totally disappears 🙂

    thank you so much for giving my grandson the chance to test your product…what a drama Mr 8 refused to drink or eat anything he thought it was in …found it hard to dissolve but in orange juice it was manageable ..the sweetness added to flavor , Ryan has struggled with dietary problems due to being a very fussy eater and the fact he doesn’t seem to like milk butter or yogurts …. and gets very bad tummy cramps and pains …having finally trialed your product he seems to have much less tummy problems and seems more settled in himself could this be the doing of our short trail ? if so awesome I just feel it needs to be more soluble and less sweet .. thank you again

    I love this product, finally a probiotic that my son will actually take. I mixed it in his juice and he didn’t notice any difference. A few days after starting this product, I noticed a few things, my sons constipation cleared up, his baby acne disappeared and he was eating more(normally a very fussy eater). It’s hard to tell whether this was from the actual product itself or not but if it is, it’s bloody brilliant 🙂

    Thank you very much for the opportunity to try this product! I first tried mixing the powder into water (it took 2 spoons to measure it out because my regular teaspoon didn’t fit and it’s not the type of powder to shake out easily!), but it didn’t dissolve very well unfortunately. I tried it myself and found it very sweet, so I think this could be a help or an issue depending on what you want to mix it with.

    My 3 kids had it mixed in with their yoghurt and muesli, in a smoothie, and also on their porridge and ate it with no problems. They didn’t notice any difference in taste and said everything was “yum”. Their snotty noses and lingering coughs have now cleared up, though I can’t be sure if this was because of the probiotics or that the bugs had finally run their course. I can definitely say that my kids have been more “regular” toilet-wise, and there have been no sore tummies since taking the powder.

    Overall I think you would need to take them for a longer period of time to see the full benefits, but in a couple of weeks I can definitely say that the powder has made a positive difference. The strong taste may be off-putting for some kids, but being a powder it is very versatile to work out different ways of serving it.

    My daughter happily took this probiotic mixed in her yoghurt and she enjoyed the taste! Such a relief as I have found other hard to disguise. I did find it difficult to mix through milk but it was fine in yoghurt.

  11. ShonaRussell 05/11/2018 at 3:06 pm

    My daughter is quite fussy. I mixed this in with her milk and she loved it. She thought it was flavoured milk 🙂 She is normally quite snotty but i have found since taking this once a day in her milk she is not as snotty and is sleeping better at night.

  12. wince192 05/11/2018 at 2:25 pm

    I have been trying the probiotic with both my daughters (2 and 8) and I have to say it has been a task! It doesnt dissolve very well so hiding it in drinks doesnt work. I have tried it in their food but they tend to notice it there as well and dont enjoy it! I have tried it in porrige where they have fruit salad too and that seem to be the winner!
    I think I would have to look into it again before buying or recommending.

  13. Sdunkley 05/11/2018 at 2:19 pm

    Thanks for the opportunity to trial this product! I will admit I was a bit worried how my boys would take this being a powder but I mixed it in with the milk in their cereal or into their yoghurt and neither has had any issues yet, my 4 year old has had a few issues with constipation but this has definitely helped!

  14. tassynicole 05/11/2018 at 12:56 pm

    I have to be honest and say I have struggled with this probiotic. Because of the flavour I found it hard to hide it in foods for my 4 year old and it wasnt the best at dissolving in my sons drink. However once we overcame those issues I did see some improvement with his digestive system – less wind and better stools.

    He was on antibiotics during the time as well and I feel it helped kept his digestive track healthy for the duration. I will keep on giving it to my sons and hopefully as we go on it more benefits will emerge.
