My ds was sick November through May when I had my kids in daycare (he was 1-1.5yo and dd was 3.5-4yo). I am so happy to have them home this year. He may still get sick fall through spring, or he may have been better this year anyway. Although I know it is good to build his immune system, it was still rough having him with a runny nose for 7 months with 5 stomach flus during that time -- yuck!
ETA: My kids are also unvaxed, eat well, and get lots of natural remedy kind of stuff.
Glad I am not the only one. Its so depressing when you do all these things and still cannot minimize or prevent an illness. With us its mostly
coughs and then often very high fevers. It is normal for DS's fever's to get up to 105 and more. Anything under 103 he is still playing happily.
This cough circulates the preschool every year. They have named the cough after the preschool. He only attends 3 half days but its enough
to get those germs. Tonight I mixed some oregano oil and coconut oil for his chest. Gave him some vit C and raw honey.
