The above pics are daania's basic daily supplements
Virgin coconut oil (below & above 1 yr old)
The beneficial is tremendous, u can just google it. Among it and the reason why my dad recommended it was
"The main component in breast milk that helped babies stay strong and free from diseases is the Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFAs), especially Lauric Acid. Outside mother's breast milk, Lauric Acid is the primary saturated fatty acids found in Virgin Coconut Oil. The MCFAs in both breast milk and coconut oil improves nutrient absorption, aid digestive function, and protect baby from harmful microorganisms"
I read in a magazine, it says that VCO can also totally cure kids under 2yrs old with pnuemonia.. how cool huh. Now days, VCOs are getting more popular and some you can buy it in stores. Basically the basic guideline in looking for VCO is it should be cristal clear liquid and high content of Lauric Acid.
So how to apply? When im not sending daania to nursery, i'll just pump twice into her milk everytime she drinks. But during working days & since that all these supplements i didnt leave it at the nursery (cus pernah hilang.. :( ) so i just give it to her early morning & once at home & pump 3-5 times , sometimes even direct in her mouth & she love it.
Multivitamin (above 1 yr old)
This multivitamin contents all the basic vitamins and minerals a growing kids should have. My dad recommended it when daania entered 1 yr old. At first she reluctant to have it due to its sourly taste, but berkat kesabaran ibu die ( + paksa daania minum...hehe) now she even asked for more. As instructed for daania age 5ml twice a day with meal. But for weekdays, i just managed to give her once a day because we have to send her to the nursery early morning.
Colostrum (above 1 yr old)
As everyone knows colostrum is the early milk . It provides nature’s ultimate formula for enhancing your child’s health, vitality, immune and digestive strength. Its a chewable tablet, as a start you may just crushed it first before giving it to your kids. The one that i bought has a fruity flavour and kids will really love it. Since that its so handy, i just simply give to daania while on the way to her nursery.. walla!
there goes my daania basic supplements.. simple jek kan.. trust me. Maybe some may think, anak dia ni makan bende2 ni sihat giler ke? To be frank, kids are vulnerable.. so does my daughter (lagi la bila dah duduk nursery and suke kutip masuk mulut apa dia nak), so for sure sometimes she'll have flu, coughing and fever (type AB blood baby are prone to cold... so mmg senang lah kene selsema budak kecik nih) . So when there's any sign of flu, cough or fever is getting her, i'll topup with these supplements below just to boost her antibody
This one i bought it after reading Mamibaby magazine. (ni my dad tak specifically recommend, i beli sendiri..huhu) Its a probiotic powder with vanilla flavour. You can google for the benefit. Since that daania is still little, she directly consume the powder from the sachet (its an option as instructed) But if your kids is old enough, its easy to just dissolve it in cold water
The vitamin C & Q Gummy is for when daania's having running nose (remember to buy natural based supplement) If you noticed at the Q Gummy bottle cover stated with Cordycep. Cordycep is actually a type of mushroom to boost your immune system ( as mentioned by my dad, sorry tak sempat to goggle for it)
For your guys info, my daughter totally LOVE all the supplements (dia ingat snack agaknya) and even i have to hide the chewable tablets so that she wont ask for more..huhu
