  • What time of year do they seem to catch colds? "Winter" if you can call it that. (l live in AZ) What's their ages? DD is 6 months and DS is almost 3. Are they mostly at home or in school/day care? At home. My son only gets sick once a year. My daughter has already been sick several times...

  • My kids are home full time. My son is two and my daughter is one. They catch a mild head cold around the start of the winter season. That's the only one they get.

  • My daughter is 13 and catches 4 or 5 a year. She is a severe asthmatic and I think that affects her. My son is 12 and he catches 1 or less each year.

  • not often. ds/5-1/2 gets a few sinus/allergy attacks a few times a year, but then so does dh/myself.

  • They used to catch a cold about twice a school year. It seems in the past year, my youngest (who is now 16) gets a cold once every other month.

  • My son is 4. He gets maybe two colds a year. When he was little he was always sick though.

  • My oldest maybe 1 to 2 a year. Our youngest however has CVID and asthma so he is sick every month even with his treatments.
