Hi everyone, it seems as though my 16 month old is constantly sick. I can go maybe a week with no illness. A runny nose/cough isn't overly concerning as he is in daycare afterall. But he's had so many fevers over the last 16 months :( I had to pick him up again today from daycare due to a high fever. I know during their first year at daycare they can get 8-10 colds in the cold/flu season but I swear he's had more. He's had bronchiolitis (sp) and bronchitis a couple of times and nobody else's kid the same age that I know has had this. Is it just that my kid is prone to more viruses? I thought breastfeeding was supposed to help their immune system? I breastfed him until he was 9 months old.
Any tips/stories? Thanks!
