A. Here are the recommendations for I have for your 12 month olds’ chronic lung infections and to strengthen her system after all those antibiotics:
Vitamin A Liquid—1 drop a day during an infection, then 1 drop per week for maintenance of her weak and underdeveloped lungs
Oregacyn liquid—for lung and bronchial infections, give her up to 5 drops 2x daily mixed in her food/drink. If she will only tolerate 2 drops, then do the best you can with it.
