    DS is almost 3 and rarely gets sick. A cold maybe every 6 months. He did have 4 ear infections over 3 months around 18 months old.

    they are in childcare fulltime and have been for about 2 years. They don't have diarrhoea when they get sick, one doctor told me they vomit from having really high temperatures which is why I give them the nurofen and cool flannels etc. When I take them to the doctor they get thoroughly checked over and they haven't ever had tonsillitis. They are on some pretty strong broad-spectrum antibiotics (they are treating for infection but aren't sure what is causing it) atm but they don't seem to be doing anything.

    My DD is almost a year and has never been that ill (she had a very mild fever after her 2nd vax, that's it so far).
    I'm sorry to hear your little ones have been so sick, I agree with pp maybe a pead would be able to get some answers for you (or they might be able to send you to another specialist if needed, ent doc etc).

    Our 2.5 year old has been sick only once with a common cold. That was over a year ago.

    He doesn't go to daycare and goes to a playgroup fairly infrequently, which I'm guessing is why.

    Dd 6 & ds 4 also have been really lucky health wise. Dd has had 1 ear infection at 3 & they both had hand foot & mouth when they started at daycare a few years ago. Other than that they both get a cold in winter but nothing more than a snotty nose for a few days.

    My sil struggles with sickness with her 3 all the time. They are similar ages to my kids and shes been seeing a naturopath for the last 6 months thats been helping her a lot by naturally building up their immune systems. Her poor lo was on that many antibiotics they weren't working anymore first course she was having to get repeats. Shes now been healthy for a few months. Good luck op hugs to you it cant be easy by yourself.

    DS who is just over 2 years has only been bed ridden once with a bad fever/cold.
    However, he seems to ALWAYS has a snotty nose and a dreadful cough. We just can't seem to shake it. He goes to daycare 3 days a week so he gets everything from there. It doesn't slow him down any, but we are constantly wiping his nose

    Hardly ever. Neither of them have been really sick at all this year. DS caught my revolting flu last August. That was the last time either of them has been really ill.

    All the time! Ds mainly. He's such a dirt boy though I think that's the reason. He's got Gastro today. When DD gets sick though she gets really really sick. Temps of 40 for a week kindvof thing.
