I am hoping to start giving my kids [6 and 4] vitamen c supplements, I am wanting to do this to help build up their immune systems until the H1N1 vaccine is available in my area [if I even decide to get the vaccine but that is anothe question] My question is, what is supplement to use and how much can I give? I have heard that the body will eliminate any unused vitamen c but I want to be sure that I cannot give them to much.
Also I have a 8 month old, breastfed, I was wondering what I can do for him? He is eating some baby food but 95% of what he gets is from me. He has already had 2 colds this year so I know that the breastfeeding is not totally protecting him.
Thank you in advance for your help!!! :)
