Keep your infant bright and bubbly with these top tips.

5 tips to help baby fight germs

1. Get baby immunised

Since babies are born with little natural immunity, these jabs will give him considerable protection against serious illness. Go to National Immunisation Registry to check the schedule.

2. Let him mix around with other kids

Coming into contact with coughs and colds will test, and actually, boost junior’s immune system.

3. Expose your mini-me to sunshine

It’ll help his body to produce vitamin D, which is vital for a healthy immune system.

4. Breastfeed

Nutrients in breastmilk strengthen and develop your infant’s immunity in his first six months of life. So, even if you can only nurse for a few weeks, it will benefit him.

5. Consider keeping a pet

Children who live with pets are less likely to suffer from asthma and eczema. But keep litter trays out of reach.
