She's four and a half and always been very healthy. In the last few months she just keeps getting sick. She had her first ear infection ever, several nasty colds, and chicken pox! This time she's had a sore throat for a couple days and threw up twice this morning. Should I do something for her immunity like supplements or something? I thought about giving her breast milk to drink. Is that beneficial in any way?

Try adding a little garlic into her diet. I sneak it in all sorts of things I cook.

It has helped our immune system a ton. I haven't been sick in years and my children are rarely ever sick now.

BM would be GREAT!!

Probiotics and maybe some multivitamins would be great for her right now

We're garlic freaks already. She'd probably eat it raw lol

Maybe take her to the Dr. and ask them if there is anything that is causing this. Have her drink lots of milk and orange juice. Vitamin C is really good when your sick. If she isnt taking any vitamins you should probably start her on those. The gummies are best for kids. They have sponge bob and dora shapes just for kids. =) I hope she feels better and i hope this helps.

That would be very good for her.
Do you think she has allergies?

If you can get her to eat it raqw this would also be very good.    I eat it raw daily and sometimes bribe my kids to have some when sick but they won't.   lol

What does her Pediatrician say?

Your daughter sounds like shes building up an immunity to these colds...so once they happen, in your immune system you have something called "Memory T Cells" that will remember the code for each cold so she wont get it again,.,so my guess is maybe she wasn't vaccinated???? 

Good luck, ask her pediatrician.
