Immune Systems

When does a child's immune system totally develop? I have a 10 month old and a 21 month old. The 10 month old is sick and the pediatrician told me to separate them for about a week. One of the questions I neglected to ask was when does a child's immune system totally develop? Does anybody know?

  • Actually a child's immune system is not totally developed until puberty - about age 14 or so.
