What can I safely give my 4 year old to boost his immune system. It seems like he constantly is picking up stuff at school. He takes gummy vitamins but are there other natural things I could incorporate?

Elderberry! Ever since I started giving it to Kay she hasn't gotten sick at all. The last time she was sick was Christmas with a cold.

Kay's Mommy I've heard about that but is that a supplement? Like how do I give to him? Can I do a gummy vitamin kind of deal with it?

I use an essential oil blend for my 3 y/o.

I second the elderberry. Fewer colds, and when he has gotten them they're much less severe. They have it in gummy form!

Elderberry syrup. Homemade or handmade is best. The premade ones have added sugars ect In them.

Mommy And M asks My wife and son went out of state to see her family because her grandparents are not doing well. I talked to him on FaceTime this morning and asked him if he missed me. He said, oh boy, I sure do! Sweet boy. They will be gone a week. I'm trying to do nothing while they are gone. Just going to work and resting.

Stephanie asks My son will be going to TK next year. I don't have to walk him into class I just drop him off in the kindergarten line. Hes still in a 5pt harness. My question is, should I leave him in his 5pt harness or should I put him in a high back booster. I watched the kindergarteners get dropped off this morning and they are all in like booster seats and the parents stop and the kids just hop out.
