Hi mamas! This is my first time on this site & I really need some advice/tips. So my daughter is 3yrs old and she goes to daycare full time, Monday-Friday. She has been sick pretty much constantly since November-December. We've taken her to the doctors many times. She's has many ear infections (probably going to be getting tubes in) and colds, and viruses. It seems as if she's literally sick every Friday evening and doesn't start feeling better until Monday-Tuesday. So this has been pretty much every weekend for the past month and a half. I'm not so worried about when she has an ear infection because I know that can be taken care of with an antibiotic. These viruses she keeps getting are what's really worrying me. It's the same symptoms every time. She complains of belly aches (a lot, like almost the entire day or weekend) she has a fever (Tylenol given ever 4hrs & once those 4hrs are up, the fever spikes back up again) congestion and funny nose. That basically sums up what she's been dealing with for the past month and half. I don't know what to do.. I'm scared!! Wouldn't her amune system build up some resistance to these viruses by now that she shouldn't be getting them every week? Help me.

In addition to the symptoms : vomiting. She will vomit one of the days she is sick, usually no more than one.
