I know what the answer to my question is going to be but I'll ask it anyway, just in case.
How to f do you stop your kids getting sick constantly?
Both my boys 1&4 have been sick for the past 4-5 weeks.
First the 4yr had a cold, then the 1 yr old got it, then he got an ear infection, had to go onto anti biotics. Then he got a rash. After that he still
Had a bad phlegmy cough so took him back to the gp and was told he had asthma as he was having trouble breathing, was wheezy etc. she put him on redipred and ventolin. This took AGES to go away, at one point I was told he may have whooping cough. Anyway after many doctors visits and a long time being sick, I was told he had bronchiolitis. He finally started to feel better (still has the phlegmy cough) and now he is sick again with something else. Runny nose again, green snot, cough getting worse and the 4yr old has the same thing.
I am still breast feeding the 1 yr old, I try my best to keep them warm, 4yr old has a multi vitamin every day, and both are great eaters with regards to veg and fruit etc.
I wash hands after playgrounds/shopping/daycare etc.
Argh! It's so frustrating! I just don't know how to avoid them getting sick all the time only the 4yr old is in daycare (2days per week)
Any other miracle tips?

It sucks doesn't it!
Sounds like you're doing all you can. One other thing we found that seemed to help was giving a probiotic, like Inner Health Plus for Kids.
Hope your boys are feeling better soon!

Move to a warmer climate ??? I hate winter for this reason. The kids and I are always picking something up from daycare tho they were pretty good last year. Dd1 only missed 2 days of daycare last year due to illness and I missed one day of work due to tonsillitis. Dd2 went off scot free last year. But the previous year was an absolute joke!!!

It definitely sux. Ds is 13 months old and I swear we have spent the last three months being sick. He doesn't go to daycare either.
I'm at a loss as to what else we can do and it sounds like you are doing everything you can.

Living in cold climates (Boston and now London) DS has been around a lot of sickness, he has had four bad colds that he had a hard time shaking. The only one that doesn't seem to get sick in our house is DH!
Some things that have helped us:
I second PP comment about probiotics, we buy a UK brand of coconut kefir and DS has that every second day, he has a cup of homemade bone broth every day (chicken is his fav but I sometimes sneak in beef) - I freeze portions and heat it up on the stove. Keep up good quality fruit and veggies.
He has a multivitamin (animal parade) and fermented cod liver oil daily.
DS has had antibiotics once for a suspected ear infection, he too had a rash and also runny poos. Twice after this I've taken him to a doctor when he was congested and the doctor has looked in his ears and said they look red and prescribed antibiotics, I gave him a day and he was fine without the antibiotics. mommypotomus has some good tips for keeping kiddos healthy - I love her site. As well as nourished kitchen.
Hope they are better soon and winter is ok! X

Sorry wish I could help.
DSS is always sick too- even in summer... I think some kids are just more prone to picking things up. No matter how well you try to avoid it.
