He has been sick every 2 weeks with something different each time. He has 3 older siblings and I know they are bringing home lots of germs--I just wish I knew what to do to make him sturdier so he isn't sick all the time. I just want my boy to be healthy.
Hey, you won't find anyone here bashing you for being a "late vaccinator". There is nothing you have done wrong to make him get sick. Does he get any supplaments? Is he home all day or does he go to day care?
My DD was SO awfully sick her 2nd winter (13-16 months old?). She was/ is in day care and it was just awful for like 3 months that year. The last 2 winters she has been so much better. I have heard it said too many times to not believe it "it is either now or when they are in kindergarten". He is building his immune system. Maybe he could use a little assistance. Check out some immune support supplements. Also, watch out for the pulmocort crazies! My DD went INSANE on that crap.
As for how to get him to take it, well we did a few while she slept. Take the mask off and stick it under her nose as she slept. It cut down on the behavior issues too. We went with the inhaler for the next year on (colds still go right to her chest, though they are much less frequent now)
