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.

  • I should also add that he is now almost two years old. Was never in preschool until two months ago.

  • My daughter was the same way she is about to be 3 and has been sick more this year than ever and had never been n preschool or daycare and is up to date on all shots.I think it has alot to do with the parents immune system before they turn 1 they have tons of antibodies but after that they take after their parents. My DD has my immune system I get sick easy my DH doesnt.
