    Me - no idea. Probably last year or the year before. I take them when needed.
    Dd1 is allergic to most antibiotics so is very carefully only take them when absolutely needed. Sadly if get mastitis it mean a hospital trip. As the ones she can have are iv only.

    Ds1 is on long term antibiotics for bad acne. If goes without for a week or two they get so bad it painful to lay down.

    Dd2 last week for a really bad chest infection. I was really worried. She was white knuckling my hand because the pain was so bad and her asthma was really bad on top. Before that a few years.

    Dd3 God knows at least 5 or more years.

    Ds2 at least 2 years..

    Ds3 at least 2 years..

    We don't go for every throat/chest infection only if they are really sick or if it's taking over a week or two to go away.

    Ummm - not often. Recently for a chest infection.

    DH has not had them for years.

    DS has had them twice. Once due to some horrible sickness that was with conjuctivitis and again for a chest infection.

    I usually just get sick with viruses so they are never needed.

    First time I've ever had them (from memory) was last year when I had mastitis. Dh took them for the only time I've seen in 7 years last year as well for bronchitis. I don't think ds has had them...

    Past 5 yrs - maybe 2 times? I had them for pneumonia and when I had appendicitis.

    Ds1 (6 yrs)- maybe 5 times in his life?
    Dd (2 yrs) - hasn't ever had them
    Ds2 (4 months) - was on iv antibiotics for 5 days as a newbie. Nothing since.

    I rarely take antibiotics. The last time would have been when DS was born 3 years ago.

    DS has had antibiotics at the same time and hasn't had any since.

    Default How often do you..

    Too many times. My immune system is compromised so usually 2-4 x a year, anything from chest infections to tonsillitis to sinus infections. I had a spider bite a few weeks back that turned into a skin infection so that was another week. Sick to death of it tbh.

    Ds has had them about 4 x in about 9 months, once he started childcare in winter he picked up a lot of nasty infections, probably half viral half bacterial. Hoping this winter is easier on him.

    I think the last time for me was probably 12-18 mtgs ago.

    DS (3) had them about 12 mths ago for cellulitis.

    DD (6) would have been 2-3 years I think. However she took them several times for ear infections when she was younger.
