So many choices out there it can be rather confusing… Here's what I've found out so far…

Before I took Jack along at 6 months to Daycare I was told that he would be sick on and off for the first year whilst building his immunity…

And boy where these people right.

Jacks now been in care for nearly a year and it’s still going on. He’s had cold after cold, a cough that never seems to end, two hospital visits and high temps on and off.  Really doesn’t seem worth it but tell that to the bills!

So this post isn’t designed to have a moan or a bleat but to let other parents out there know it does happen and I’m asking for other to join in by commenting on this post any tips, tricks, ideas to help get us all though this immunity building period!

Need to go down the natural health route for a while as what the doctors prescribe (antibiotics) aren’t doing their thing, just masking it for a few weeks/months and it’s back. So need to build his immunity up:

My recommendations so far?

A pro biotic to help with building immunity

Colloidal Silver as a natural antibiotic

Half a teaspoon of Manuka Honey as from what I’ve read online this can have better results than any cough medicine for you wee one.  (read reviews here and what it says on Wikipedia)

Vaporizer/ Humidifier in your child’s room

Now that Jacks that little bit Older 18 months I’ve put a pillow in his cot to lift him up, works well with the cough at nights.
That’s it for now but would love to hear from other parents on how they coped during this time.

Here’s to a happy, healthy home!
