    Default Liquid probiotic - does such a thing exist?

    I want to start my DS on a probiotic, but due to sensory issues (ASD), the only real way of administering it to him would be in liquid form via a medicine syringe (this is how we give him vitamins).

    Is there a liquid probiotic on the market?

    He has a limited diet and it'll be hard to disguise it in the foods he eats. He won't touch anything like lollies. I also bought a chocolate probiotic previously to try, but he won't touch them either.

    You can get it in a powder, I just mix it in the kids drinks

    Not sure how old DS is?? Depending on this, these may be an option. Pretty sure they can still be used as kids, the dosage is just different.

    My DS is almost 5. I'm sure I could just up the dosage. This could work!

    I have the baby drops for my ds (but he's only 6 mths). You only need 6 drops for babies up to 2 yrs old so even if you doubled it you could still prob just add it to his food. It tastes like nothing much!

    Inner Health Plus have a powder for kids too. Dissolves in liquid, or you can sprinkle it on cereal etc.

    I can't say I have seen one, but as PP suggested there are several powdered ones on the market, you could mix with water or juice or milk and try that. I've only tried inner health powder with DS and it seems to dissolve completely, untraceable 😉
