    That's good to know. Personality-wise he copes well at the centre as he's very social with other children and his room only has a capacity of 9. It's just at startup and shut down they move into the 2yo room which has many more kids over the day. With a big sister at school and me teaching, we get our fair share of bugs already!

    I took my dd to the gp for the same reason. He told me that on average kids under 2 at daycare get one virus etc/month with an average duration of 2 weeks, and this reduces by 50% when they reach 2.

    That said, I wouls still go to the GP to discuss your concerns and start from there.

    Sorry, you are going through this, it sounds exhausting. I think it's pretty normal though. I think young children get way more than 7 - 10 illnesses per year. Specially if they go to child care. One paediatrician once told be they get up to 30 bugs/year as toddlers. Then once their immune systems gets better they don't get affected by it so much.

    That being said, if your mum instinct tells you something isn't right, it wouldn't hurt to discuss your concerns with your GP

    Don't panic. It's far too early to worry about there being an underlying issue. It's normal for kids (unfortunately) to get sick for the first 6 months or so after starting daycare.

    She is at kinder this year and has brought home her fair share of bugs, but she actually gets well in between rather than constant sickness. Hopefully another year of kinder will help her immunity further so school won't be too bad!
