Maybe try probiotics. These really help for low immune systems, especially when they've been on antibiotics.

Hi Melissa,

At this age, a child's immunity is not as strong as ours. It is quite normal for a child to get sick often as a child. Your child is working on getting an immunity to these diseases. And the way to do that, is to contract them. There is nothing you are doing wrong, it is just how we get our immune system. Hope this helps you feel better.

Hi Melissa. My son would get really sick (blocked nose, chesty, high fevers) and I spent a few nights in the emergency room room with fever fits (not pretty when they start convulsing and stop breathing). After about my 4th visit, the doctor on call referred us to an ENT and once we had his tonsils removed, no more hospital visits for me. Have him checked out for tonsilits, I have heard of a few cases where the little buggers have been the cause of a lot of sleepless nights.
