Hey mammas! This is my first time asking a question and I'm new to this site but I need some opinions. Okay.. So my daughter is 3yrs old and goes to daycare full time, Monday-Friday. Since November it's pretty much been an ongoing battle with her being sick. She'd get ear infection after ear infection and that just seemed like it was never ending (most likely are getting tubes in her ears.) and then when she doesn't have the ear infections it's something else. I'm not even exaggerating when I say she's literally been sick almost 3 times a week since November. It usually happens every weekend and will last until late Monday. Doctors keep telling me its a virus but I'm seriously getting worried! She's sick now and has had a fever since Friday evening, it's now Sunday night.. We've been doing Tylenol every 4hrs and she's extremely congested. She does drink and pee, so she isn't dehydrating. My biggest concern is why is she ALWAYS sick? I honestly would've thought her immune system would've been able to fight these "viruses" off a little better or that she would gain a tolerance type to them and wouldn't catch everything under the sun. Anyways, I'm going to call the doctor again in the morning because I'm just scaring myself more and more thinking about this. Does anyone have any advice or have been thru this? Thanks so much!
