None: And don't believe anyone who claims to have a special supplement that does. Just eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly. A daily, generic (inexpensive) multiple vitamin is also reasonable.

Wash hands: First of all - be sure that your child (as long as he is 6 months of age or older), as well as the rest of the family is vaccinated against influenza yearly. Then, wash hands, wash hands, wash hands. You can wash with soap and water or use a hand cleanser. Other ways to avoid infection include not sharing foods or drinks.

What are the best ways to protect my baby's soft spots?

Normally...: Normally they don't need protecting. They can't damage them with their own movements, you won't damage them with normal gentle handling, and most people don't need to be reminded not to drop a child on his head, or to strike a child's head hard enough to do any harm. People do need to be reminded not to shake a baby, since it does happen quite a bit, with serious consequences.

Protection relative: Condoms, spermacides, washing parts, etc. Do not protect you against syphillis. Only avoiding contact with an infected parter can protect you. Transmission rates run 30% or so per exposure with an infected partner., .
