The first year was pretty constant for illnesses. She would be off every few weeks or so with something else wrong and had colds what felt like constantly. Now, she picks up the inevitable colds every year and the odd bug.
Not looking forward to going through it all again with my son xx

Me neither, but I'm hoping the baby will at least build up some kind of immune system from all the crap her sister brings home lol.

Truthfully.... It never really went for my 2! My daughter had a green snotty nose for about 6 months solid it just became part of her face.
6 of them have just came down with chicken pox one being my son but he took it badly and ended up also getting a strepoccus infection and ending up in hospital.
We've had vomiting bugs, conjunctivitis, and many many colds but same time my kids just act normally with it and just get on with it (unlike me Im moaning constantly if I get so much as a cough)

Don't think it ever stops

My daughters been going to nursery 3 days a week since she was 9 months old, she is now 4 and can have a cold several times a year ... you soon notice how many they actually get!

It seems like no sooner has she got rid of one, she has another.

Common colds is her main illnesses, she has probably only ever caught 2-3 tummy bugs in the whole time and chicken pox last year when she was 3.

Rest assured you're not on your own.

Hiya I remember when my now three year old started going to playgroup at a year old. She got three stomach bugs in ten months. It was horrible because we got it 48 hours later... She has just started nursery two months ago. I have been pretty anxious about her getting stomach bugs again as we have a small baby too.. So far she's had 3 colds. She had one bad day with a cold and the rest she was alright. Her cousin who is three months older has been at nursery from 10 months. She's constantly snotty and chesty. She's had conjunctivitis and hand foot and mouth and chicken pox. I interestingly read that it's not true that it's getting in out the way for school as a child's immune system is not mature enough to cope well with virus after virus..
It makes sense I suppose. I am still on the edge of my seat expecting a horrible stomach bug any week now. I hope your daughter is feeling better soon. It's hard when you are sending them for a reason or a break and you almost end up punished by having a poorly child for the rest of the week xx

Oh dear!!! God it's awful. I am truly dreading the stomach bugs and feel very fortunate that we've never had one in her life, but I know it's only a matter of time.

We've just got over yet another nasty cold, possibly the 4th or 5th since March now, I'm losing track ... I know she will have another one soon too, as that just seems to be life now!??!

Honestly, at times I've almost felt like I want to pull her out of nursery, which is silly I know, but it's just ridiculous coping with this. However, she loves it there and although we've been successful in deferring school for a year, I still feel it's really important that she learns about other children now to ensure she is ready to cope with school next year. The nursery staff are absolutely wonderful about her - so complimentary and forever telling us how special she is and how proud we should be of the person she is, so I know she is definitely thriving there and it's the right thing to do, but I can't help feeling a bit miffed at the parents who keep on sending their ill children in come hell or high water. Silly perhaps, but I just feel so sorry for my kids!

Illness is part and parcel of nursery I’m afraid! My DD was constantly ill when she was little but she seems to have built a bit of an immunity towards it now- there is hope, lol.

Working in a nursery, if parents kept their children off every time they had a cold, we’d never have any children in whilst I don’t agree with parents sending very poorly children in/children beyond the realms of the usual cold, it’s just part of being a child I think. Even if you pulled her out of nursery, the same happens through school years! Although rubbish, it is inevitable! On a positive, at least she’ll have built up a bit of immunity for when she does go to school!
