We've used Kirkman labs and liked them but I'm interested in Klaire because their infant formula seems more robust than Kirkman bifido complex. Plus, Klaire has a chewable for kids which would be good  for my older kids.  

 

I'm just wondering if you have experience with them. They claim to be hypoallergenic, and mainly we're trying to avoid dairy (but probably also soy).  Also, is there any easy way to order from them?  I'm reading on their website that you have to order through a doctor and we don't have a naturopath or anything like that.

 

TIA!

We have purchased from them before and have had very good results.  Our allergist gave us a referral code in order to place an order.

You can purchase Klaire products directly online at vitalbee.com I have bought from them before and the prices are reasonable, plus they have free shipping for any amount (in the U.S. at least). Not sure if they have the particular product you want, but worth looking. I used them for myself in the past and didn't react so I think they are okay (I'm dairy/soy/gluten/corn free).

Yep, they're fab! I have ordered from vitalbee, but not Klaire products. I can purchase them locally at a nutritionist-owned gf store.

We ordered from purelabs.com and they came nice and cold-packed. :)  We like them, no reactions from them and we are avoiding gluten, corn, and soy.  Speaking of them, I need to order some more LOL!

We did not do well with them.  At the time, the Klaire ones we tried all had inulin, and I think that was the issue for us.  Helped some at first, then made things worse, causing blood in stool and increased gas and less firm stool.

 

Inulin and FOS are not well tolerated by a lot of people.
