Q.

Immune Booster

My 4 month old baby is now at a daycare, since the flu/sicknesses spread quite easily amongst infants, I need to know if there is something that I can give him to prevent him getting the flu.

It is difficult to advise you about an immune booster for such a young baby. Probably the safest would be to give your baby a probiotic to boost his immune sytem.Use Reuteri infant drops 1ml daily for 10 days per month especially for the winter months.
