Recent experience with Manuka honey with my B-major child has shown great effect on his Hb count. Omar used to take transfusions every two weeks. After using a UMF 15+ Manuka Honey, he now transfuses every three weeks.

I believe Manuka excels mostly because of two main attributes:
1- It has a high anti-bacterial activity
2- It is not micro-filtered or pasteurized (raw)

If someone would like the nutritional values alone and has no need for the immune-boosting properties, other raw honeys are available at a fraction of the cost.

Manuka honey has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which could explain how it helps to extend the life of red blood cells. Let us know if this positive effect maintains over time.

One teaspoon maximum at that age. I would suggest starting with half teaspoon at first.

Have the doctors given you any dietary restrictions? If sweets are not restricted, manuka honey would be helpful.

doctors here put no restriction at all, even they say chocolates and canned juices can be given... therefore we are a bit careful what to feed the baby.. he actually got a diarrhea which according to doctors might be due to GVHD ..
