Wouldn't that be nice -- a magic super-syrum to fend off colds in toddlers. We don't get sick here all that often, but when we *do* get colds they seem to last forever and get passed around to every family member before slinking off ~4-6 weeks later. So aren't I always wishing for a magic syrum at the first sign of a runny nose...
Mind you, DS woke up yesterday with watery eyes and a runny nose, and it only lasted ONE day. That's a first for us. So maybe there is something to the anecdotal idea of super-immuno-power colostrum for toddlers. Sorry to hear that it wasn't that way for you, wombatclay. Maybe *everyone* in your family should have been drinking your colostrum, LOL!
Too bad not more responses on this thread (yet?)
I was wondering especially about nutritional benefits (in addition to immunological benefits) because I am always wanting to make sure DS gets enough nutrients in his vegetarian diet. He grazes a lot and eats a big variety of foods but with my milk supply so low now (gone entirely?) I am more conscious than ever that he really needs to benefit from what he eats. Gosh this stage came so fast.
