Clingy, sick child?


As some of you know, I am fairly obsessed with how the human body works. The more I learn, the more I love it and the more I want to learn! Part of this is because I am so intrigued and in awe with how intelligently and wonderfully made we are. The body is so amazing. So when I stumbled upon yet another article about how a child’s immune system works, I was delighted and wanted to share.

A child needs closeness, comfort, and contact for optimal emotional, physical, psychological, and neurological well-being. This is even more true while the child’s immune system is fighting something off (“sick”, if you will). So, if your little one seems “clingy” the next time they are under the weather, remember that closeness to YOUR body enhances THEIR body’s ability to produce antibodies and regulate their body temperature to fight off that invader quickly and more efficiently. Just another way that parents and children work together as a team for optimal health!
