    Default How often do your kids get sick?

    My dd is almost 3 and she doesn't get sick and She attends daycare 3 days per week. I think she has a super power or something.

    My kids are sick all the time. My ds was sick for nearly all of Term 2. He missed about 5 weeks of school and coughed for 8 - 10 weeks straight - took him to a Respiratory Specialist who said it was all viral ... which it was ... it stopped shortly after the appointment! He has had bad Croup 4 times this year alone (yes, he's nearly 7, but some children have it when they are older apparently ...).

    My ds was sick maybe 3 times in Term 3 and dd about the same amount. Each time they are usually sick for 7 - 10 days too! Usually just colds/coughs/etc but they get super miserable.

    Rarely - my DS1 cried the one day he had to miss school so far this year because he vomited in the morning just as we were about to leave. He felt fine afterwards and didn't want to have to stay home. Ha!

    Very rarely, and usually only a slight temperature (mostly related to her teeth)

    When they were younger they got sick all the freaking time. Seriously they were shocking. DS had 22 viruses in his first 15 months!

    As they got older they have definitely become stronger. DD is in her second year of school and rarely has time off, DS is at daycare and also is pretty hardy!

    The boy - cops everthing. poor bugger. Been on Anti biotics
    3 x and he's only 9mths old. He doesnt go to daycare but must pick up what dd brings home??
    DD is 2.5yrs - Gets the odd cold and mild temp, nothing panadol cant relieve. She's a trouper, doesnt let it bother her and soldiers on. Never taken her to the GP. She goes to Dacycare also.
