After your children turned one did you find they were more sick?

My child has been sick a lot since turning one. He was never sick, not even a runny nose the first year of life. Is this common. I was told that certain anti-bodies that kids are born with leave at the one year mark. There fore leaving their immune systems very susceptible to illness. Thanks for the advice.

  • nope, mine are just as healthy if not more so the older they get.

    any changes? such as going to day care now or new babysitter? the exposure to new things can cause them to get sick more.
