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.

New Mom B asks I'm up to my wits ends with my 4yo. We moved in to a new house 3 weeks ago and I had his baby brother a week ago. He goes to the same school so at least that wasn't a change. But at home he will not go to sleep until 11-12midnight. I don't know what to do. We do the same routine as we did at the old house and still nothing. He acts well around his brother he just won't go to sleep. Any ideas? Thank you
