Getting tougher ?

YX wearing a mask in the children's wad (quarantine room) in the General Hospital @ Jan/Feb 2011

YX sleeping at the pead clinic sofa while waiting for his turn @ early March 2011
Looking at the above 2 pictures, it always reminded me of how weak YX was. In this year 2011, YX had visited the doctor in two different occasions. The first picture was during the CNY weeks whereby he was diagnosed with Influenza B. The second picture was last month whereby he was down with diarrhea and vomiting.

Now, in the month of April, YX was having flu and cough. But I've noticed that it was just a mild one. So, my prediction was maybe I've constantly gave YX his multivitamins, cod liver oil and fresh vege + fruits diligently and that had help? even he still fell sick?

In the early of March, I've been giving both YX and XJ Scott's Emulsion Cod Liver Oil without FAIL every night before bedtime. Previously, I did give them this cod liver oil but I always forgot and did not give them everyday. Ended up, they ate in vain. On top of that, I've also gave them multivitamins EVERYDAY (since early March) and Vitamin C (since last week). Hubby too did his part. He will sliced fresh fruits for both kids after dinner EVERY NIGHT and make sure they ate them. In addition, I will cut green vege and add into their meals.

I hope by pumping those supplements and fresh fruits plus vege into their diet, YX and XJ will not fall sick so often in the future. Or maybe recovered faster ?

  1. Yeah, pumping with multivit, milk and probiotic will definitely help to boost the immune system!

  3. You are practising well here. All these supplements, fruits and vegie help to boost their immune system. They are unlikely to fall sick easily. And when they do, they'll recover faster. Keep it up, mummy!

  13. Kids fall sick all the time. That's how they build the antibodies and immunity. But all those things you gave are supposedly good but do consider natural sources - fruits, vegetables and so on.
