Baby sick like every week. Normal?

Ever since daycare my son (11 months) has been sick what seems like every damn week. When he isnt at daycare he seems to recover a lot quicker and seems to feel better. Then i take him back and hes sick again. Stays home, recovers...back to daycare...sick. Its like every week, no joke. Runny nose, sleepy, cough..is this normal? Of course it is winter but still..

    When a child is first exposed to everything - they tend to catch everything.

    Talk to your doctor about the best medications to use to help ease the symptoms.  If there is a fever, be sure to call the doctor.

    Also - consider one other possibility -  your child might also be having an allergic reaction to something at the daycare.  Runny nose is a very common allergic reaction also and the cough can be triggered by the drainage that might also be running down his throat from the runny sinuses.  So, if all these symptoms keep happening but never with a fever, there might be other issues too.  Ask your doctor if it is a cold or an allergic reaction to something.  (being sleepy might just be a result of the schedule change to attend daycare - he might not nap as well there as he would if he is at home which would make him sleepy at times that aren't normal for when he is at home)  

    But - yes - it is normal.

    Very common when kids start daycare (or school). Their immune systems are being tested by germs they aren't used to and that means they get viruses more easily for awhile as the immune system strengthens and learns to work more efficiently.

    Yes it's normal. Daycare is germ central. The upside is that his immune system is getting stronger every week.
