  • Every year a new round of viruses hits, and babies, with their untested immune systems, are prime targets. But there are plenty of strategies to help your baby avoid colds and the flu – and many ways to make her more comfortable and happy when she's sick.

  • 12 months. We went to Panama and we all got sick. My daughter got very sick. She had a fever of 103.6. They said it was pharyngitis. We're not sure where he got it, but my BIL was the first one to got sick and then we all followed suit.
