Even staff cop it in thier first year on the job. On average the first year is the worst so i would focus on lots of healthy food and plently of sleep while thier immune systems adjust. Its rough.

First year of daycare for us was constant illness, constantly needing days off work. Once that year was up, he was barely sick.

My daughter got EVERYTHING when she first started daycare, for about the first 9-10 months. There was a period there where it was rare for her to attend both days each week! Now, touch wood, she hadn't been sick for a while. I think unless you witness unhygienic behaviour or the centre looks dirty, changing centres probably won't make a difference.

My gp told me that they get an average of one thing per month with a duration of 2 weeks but that reduces by half once they turn 2.

My DS started daycare at about 9 months, and was sick every week for about 6 months. I ended up so run down that I was constantly sick as well. I missed so much work, and it was just not sustainable. After DS was hospitalised for the 3rd time I decided that I had to pull him out of daycare. I got family to look after him while I worked for about 2 months, so that we could both recover. He's been back in daycare for 2 months and hasn't been sick from daycare at all (so far!). Not sure whether it's because the time off gave his immune system to recover and rebuild..? A friend did the same with her DS and he hasn't been sick as much either.
