In 10 years I don't think all my kids put together have had anywhere close to that many infections, so I wouldn't consider it normal at all. Some kids are more prone to infections though.

Not normal ask for a specialist. My daughter had an infection about every other week until I found a real nurse that told me to request a specialist.

My daughter has had an infection for the last 5 months. 4 Ear infections and now a chest infection. No matter what you do to prevent these infections they seem to still get them. My sons were never sick when they were little but my daughter is sick all the time. Just make sure that they eat a healthy balanced diet and are getting all there vitamins and minerals and most important of all is that they are getting enough sleep.

Other than that there is nothing you can do but hope they grow out of it. Children are very different some are super healthy and some are prone to infections.
