My two kids (between 1.5 and 4) have been constantly sick with various bugs since the beginning of the year. I know that it is coming into our house because our youngest started daycare this year, and she passes everything on to our toddler, but it is weekly!!

Do any other mums have any advice on how to avoid daycare lurgies and how to boost immune systems? We’ve started on probiotics but they have not helped yet …

  • My son has hardly had a cold until this year when starting pre-kinder. he was sick for 3 weeks with a croupy cough, high temp for 48 hours, and a cough that would not leave. The pharmacist recommended Inner Health Plus capsules and he’s been having one a day. She recommended he keep taking them for a while – especially into the new year when he starts Kindergarten. He’s also on a multivitamin with fish oil.

  • the kids immune systems get stronger by fighting bugs!

  • Doctor always told me that vitamin C is very good for kids, mine take them daily with multivitamins…..they still catch the odd flu but it can be good for their immune system to build up so they can fight off nasty bugs.

  • What you have just stared on with the kids sounds like it is a good thing long term and once it kicks in should work. My son is in day care twice a week and he picks up lots of colds but i have also found during the cooler weather if i put a short sleeved knitted vest under his jumper, it has helped with the colds and keeps his cheast warm while in care.
