    Probiotics and cut out dairy to see if it helps. I was a super sick 4 year old, a mild dairy intolerance was the culprit.
    I have also found a salt lamp in my kids rooms has seen a drastic reduction in viruses that cause colds, coughs and their symptoms.

    Just wanted to say that my DD is the same, except it's colds and gastro that she seems to get She rarely gets super sick, just enough for her to feel average and for me and DS to catch it off her and feel average too. She has a new runny nose every second week. It's driving me crazy but it certainly seems way worse in the winter. I'm hoping by next year her immune system will be a bit more robust. She takes a multi and a pro-biotic. Doesn't appear to help her much but it's certainly worn trying. She is also on reduced dairy because she often complains of stomach pain after consuming a lot of it. Also I had her in daycare last year one day a week and she was so sick every single week I took her out because it seemed to be the only way for her to recover. She doesn't get as sick as that anymore so maybe her immune system is already working a little bit better? It's so draining, I almost start to have a panic attack now when she tells me she's feeling sick or looks pale, I start thinking omg not again!!!!!

    Just some background, DS was born with reflux and colic which we battled for over a year and along with that in his first year he was hospitalised 6 times for broncilitius ranged from a 2 night stay up to a 10 night stay. Every year since he has been hospitalised at least twice for broncilitius . And it is on top of all those illnesses that he gets other viral infections (this is what our doctor diagnoses him with) from ear infections, throat infections, cold and flu. When he gets sick he gets really sick, going from my very active 4 yr old to not moving of the lounge, sleeping, not eating at all or drinking much for no less then 5 days.

    I really want to try to get on top of this before he heads off to school next year .

    I bought mine online when they had free shipping. They often do 10% off too. And have a FB page.
    You can find out on their website where it is stocked in your area at a healthfood shop. The C Berry Blast and the vegi one are excellent for immunity and much better than any multi vitamin. My husband and I have them too.

    I have just ordered the complete kit of kids superfood and I'm going to go to the shops when they open to get a good probiotic.

    Thanks to the posters that suggested these :-)

    Your most welcome. I add the pink one to yoghurt and the purple one to milk. If adding the purple one to milk I do find it takes a few shakes then wait a little and shake again. It takes a white to actually break down into the milk. But it makes a lovely choc milk drink.
    One of my easy ways with the vegi is to sprinkle on a fried egg then sprinkle cheese on top. When u flip the cheese melts and serve. Do this with hubby's eggs every morning. But it's really easy to add to all food & baking.
    I also have the protein powder and give my son a teaspoon in his night milk to keep him full and sleep better.

    Hope these work for you

    How long to stay on probiotics for? Just through the season or all the time?

    Where do you find salt lamps from? In the long term do you think there're safe?

    My kids take probiotics all year round.
    We have a salt therapy centre near us (brilliant for respiratory issues if there's one near you) so we got it from there. But I've noticed health food shops selling them now as well. Ours only cost $25 so don't get ripped off!
    What to do you mean safe in the long term? In what regards? We used to have to put a heater on in my kids room to stop the cold air triggering asthma symptoms. Now we just have the salt lamp on. You just need to place a towel underneath it to catch the moisture it drops, but I've never been worried about safety. It actually works as a brilliant night light for the kids

    I think I meant breathing in the minute salt drops long term. Or is it just like living near the beach?
