Q.

sick all the time

My two children are sick all the time since birth this is. It's ear infection sinus, brochitis, tonsils and bladder infections. They are really ill almost every second week, then it takes about a week to recover and then it starts all over again. Any advice.

I cannot comment, but it will be best to visit the same doctor every time so that he can do the necessary tests if he feels alarmed by the frequency of infections.

Hi there,

I have experienced similar with my daughter, always chesty and snotty. I had tons of advice, from using immune boosters to bathing with a couple of drops of natural oils, etc, but none of it really made a difference. But recently the creche decided to opt for "Duraturf" rather than normal grass, and since then she seems to be much better, and apparently so are lots of the other "allergy" babys. It might be dust related (which I think is the case with my one) and this causes all the allergies. Maybe check out where they are on a daily basis and see if you can't opt for a more dust free environment. This is just a suggestion, based on MY experience with a sicky baby.
Good luck.
