    I know it's not my fault, but if he didn't go to daycare then he probably wouldn't be sick so often and it is my choice to go to work, so I am sure some would say its my fault in a way.

    I always find that mums tend to blame other mums/kids when their kids get sick lol!

    No. Being sick is a part of life.

    Yep i do this too, oh this explains why we argued alllll day long yesterday. Then feel bad for being crabby at him.

    But kids will get sick no matter what! It helps build their immune system before school anyway

    No I blame my niece and nephew!

    The only time I would feel guilty was if I passed it onto them or as pp if I was cranky with ds before I realised he was getting sick.

    Nah, I usually think #winning- a day off! Mind you, I actually can't think of the last time DS was sick. I'm thinking it would have to be over a year ago- maybe 2. DS doesn't get "catch" bugs that are going around.
    Sometimes he gets a tummy ache which is normally fixed when he does a big poo. He's vomited 3 times in his 7years and once it was heat stroke. He did get croup a fair bit when he was younger, which was horrible. I would look to what I need to change- inside by 4pm, socks on when going to bed etc but I wouldn't beat myself up over it though, it seemed inevitable he was going to get it every winter. Anyway he seems to be over that now. If DS has days off school it's usually when he's fallen over and bumped his head (he seems to bump his head A LOT!!!).

    Nope, I don't.

    You can't ever control these things. There's probably things you can do to minimise the risks, but even people who do absolutely everything 100% perfectly will sometimes have spewy kids. It's just how life is.

    You know, when your kid's an adult, he's not going to look back and remember this... and if he does, he's unlikely to blame you or even care that it happened.

    No never. I just think its part and parcel of being a kid. They are going to get sick.

    I have two kids, my 4 y/o had had antibiotics definitely once, but maybe twice in her life, my 2 y/o has had more antibiotics than I can remember. They live together, they share everything, one gets sick, the other doesnt. Its just one of those things really.

    No I don't, I agree with FL's post. I do sometimes blame my kids for making me sick in jest.
