I found this book at the library when James was very small. One of the best things I learned in it was the following tip:
When your little one is sick, put 10-12 chewable Vit. C tablets in a small dish. Add 1/4 c. of water and allow them to melt. I put them in a small plastic dish with a lid.
When the vitamins have melted, stir the concoction and have your child take several medicine droppers full of the liquid–repeat this several times throughout the day.
This helps them absorb the Vit. C quickly and because it’s already in liquid form, their immune system can make use of it much faster.
When James was a toddler, I couldn’t give him Vit C. tablets but I could give him a dropper of this liquid. The first time I did it he had a low grade fever and within an hour of taking this he was back to normal.
I use this pretty often still for colds or when the yuckies seem to be hanging around. It’s a quick way to get a lot of Vit C into a child when you know they won’ t chew several tablets.
Vitamin C is water soluble which means that it is not stored in the body and “too much” Vitamin C will be flushed away by the kidneys.
Some Vit. C info.
