Lil Community: Seeking Advice For a Constantly Sick Child

This post was submitted by senorita in the Ask Anything box.

Daycare. My daughter is always sick . . . just wondering if other moms had similar problems with child care?

My daughter's been in daycare for over a year now and has been sick once. I'm not sure if she has some sort of crazy immune system, haha, but she eats REALLY well, and she gets a liquid multi-vitamin, plus an omega-3, a probiotic, and a vegetable one (chewables). I don't know if that has anything to do with it, but just thought I'd throw that out there. I also make sure (like everyone else does I'm sure) that she gets a good scrub in the bathtub on daycare nights. So far we haven't had too much trouble.

my niece is in daycare and she is literally sick every single day. She always has some cold or virus or strep throat, etc. Just too many kids with too many siblings and too much human contact on young immune systems to not get ill often.

Both of my daughters, ages 2 and 6, have attended daycare since 3 months old. They have been sick quite a bit, so this is not unusual as far as I am aware. I am just hoping it means they will have strong immune systems as adults. Hang in there, it does get better as they get older. My 6 yr old hardly ever gets sick any more, other than strep. That one seems to go around constantly. Take care.
