Q.

toddler always sick after starting daycare

my baby is 17 months old, he just started day-care 2 months ago. he is forever sick, i am thinking of taking him out and get a nanny to stay home with him until maybe next year. if it''s not a flu, it''s a runny tummy, throat infection, i can''t take it anymore. while looking for a nanny, is there any supplement u can recommend that can atleast boost his imune system to fight off these infections. I am giving him creche guard, it seems to do nothing for him

This is a very common problem and is known as the 'creche syndrome'. Creche Guard is usually an effective immune booster. Try Scotts Emulsion which is also usually very helpful as an immune booster. It would be an excellent idea to take your little toddler out of day care.
