Anyone have any advice for me? My 17 mos. old daughter seems to always be sick, literally every 2 1/2 weeks after she gets over some illness she's already got another one. Family and friends are starting to make comments now and are accusing me of doing something wrong because they also see that she is always either getting over something or coming down with something. It's usually a cold but sometimes it's a fluish type illness. She's only had one ear infection and rarely has fevers, it just seems that her immune system is AWFUL! Originally I just figured it was because she lives with 6 other people in our house and has never lived a sheltered life (I bring her everywhere with me). She's never been in daycare and isn't immunized (yah, and I'm getting sick of mainstreamers telling me that they just "know" her many illnessess are due to her not being vaccinated, which I'm very aware has absolutely no basis). Anyway, her illnesses are superficial and never require doctor visits but it is getting to the point where I'm starting to think something is wrong. It's also very upsetting to always have to see her suffering, I think lately it's wearing on her because she used to be such a happy baby and now her temperment is shot and everyday is filled with her constant whining and crabbing, I can't seem to bring back the happy carefree baby that once was. Is there any vitamins I can give her to boost her immune system? Any advice of any kind will be greatly appreciated!!!! Thanks so much!
