    DS1, is 2.5years, is sick about 3/4 times a year. Never last very long, he might get the cold that lasts a few days once in winter. Doesn't bother him though.

    He was fully ff from 6 weeks and has attended daycare since 6months.

    I think he's a pretty healthy little boy :-)

    My ds (6) probably gets sick with a cold/virus 5 - 6 times a year maybe a little more. He can be sick for up to week each time though and often coughs for 2 - 3 weeks afterwards (post viral cough, not asthma). He's has croup twice (once at 5 and once at 6) and he's had gastro 2 - 3 times in his life. He had ear infections as part of the illnesses when he was younger, but not so much now. He's had bacterial tonsillitis once (at 18 months). He was BF til 12 months but I'm not sure that made much difference. He wasn't in childcare til 3, but before that he socialised with little kids quite a bit and caught quite a few colds/etc.

    My dd (18 months) tends to get colds/viruses in pairs. Seriously. She got 2 viruses in November/December. I missed the first one and she was better for a few days, but we both ended up very sick a few days later. In all she was sick for 3 - 4 weeks. It then happened again 6 weeks ago. She got a cold/cough and was better after 10 days, then my ds got a cold and shared it with her only a few days later! grrr!! (I didn't get it though). She's had quite a few cold/coughs, but only one ear infection and no other illnesses (no gastro in particular thankfully). She was BF til 16 months.

    Im probably going to regret this... But knock on wood, DS has not been sick once in his 15 months of life. Not even a fever. He was bf til 10 months and i stopped sterilising his dummies/bottles from 7 months (just hot soapy water) he plays outside and eats dirt, he sees other kids at play group (not in any formal care) and plays with dogs daily. I do wash his toys weekly and after visits with other kids (habit from working in child care).
    Im prepared for the bararge of sickness when he starts kindy, but wont do that til hes 3. So fingers crossed for this flu season!!

    Yup sounds like my son! He is asthmatic as well and also needs his tonsils and adnoids removed, he has had tonsilitis over 20 times in under 3 years... and yup a winter baby too (july). He's also been hospitalised with rotavirus despite being immunised and has issues with extremely high temps and convulsions. He also has suspected Sensory processing disorder. I tell ya, its been a full on almost 3 years

    no dr here will diagnose asthma under 5 so its just oral redipred for 3-7 days every time a croup attack occurs
    Oh that sux, we have a 'temporary diagnosis' as there is a chance he will outgrow it but he is treated for it eith daily flixotide jr which has been a huge help for him, a lot less attacks and wheezing.

    DD is 8yrs old. She was breast and bottle fed for 5 months, then only bottle till 2yrs or so. She is hardly ever sick, a few slight colds and gastro maybe once or twice in her life. Hardly ever vomited. First ear infection at around age 4.

    DS is 6yrs old, was breastfed till almost 3yrs old. Never had formula. He had ear infections as a baby. Has allergies (peanut anaphylatic, dust etc) and gets a cold a couple of times a year. He's also had a few bouts of bronchitis. Gastro/vomiting maybe 3-4 times in his life so far.

    My mostly bottle fed DD seems to have a stronger immunity than DS. I believe breast is best and promotes better health but its not a guarantee that they'll have super immunity or be allergy free.

    DD was BF/FF til 6 weeks then exclusively FF. she's 2 now and has never vomited or had diarrhea, and she gets the usual amount of colds from daycare. She's had croup once and only had a high temperature twice. So pretty healthy!
