Ok girls any thoughts here...my ds who is 34 months is catching germs a bit more than I like...he has been sick at least 6-10 times since October 2002. It has been either a nasty cold or a stomach bug. He has been in the ER 2x for re-hydration due to the stomach bug.
He is not in daycare and not around sickly kids, except for LLL group when sometimes mothers who are not to kind bring snotty noses with them to the meets.

He is healthy and thriving otherwise and nurses quite a bit...what happened to the notion of bf babies not being ill for us?

We have an appt with our holistic doctor in April but just wondering if I am alone here or anyone else go through this?
TIA

I am wondering the same thing. My dd (1.5 yrs) has been through something similar just since January!

I sure don't know, but I'm going to see if she has a milk allergy, which may at least explain the constant runny nose and eczema.

awww.......Comet my best friend IRL said the same thing about my ds...
does your DD ask for milk all the time?
My ds does and I have been trying to limit it to just mealtime and really push the water but then it seems like he drinks nothing if he does not have the milk :

Have you tried switching to soy milk? If he doesn't like the taste right away, you can mix it with cow's milk for a little while.
