Q.

Multivitamins

Hi doctor, I have a 7 months old who is not in my care during the day as I'm a full-time working mom. What multi-vitamins can I give him to decrease his chances of being sick? He's also had very bad diareah, he's better now but living on Reuterina drops and Zinplex syrup. I find the Reuterina drops a bit pricey, what other good multi-vitamins can you recommend? I saw somewhere a Creche-guard, is it good when it comes to preventing diareah? Thanks

Zinplex is very good. You don't need to give the probiotic every day. Giving a probiotic for 10 days per month should be enough. The new Entiro range of probiotics may be cheaper to use.
