  • I don't remember with DS but he was pretty little... DD had a fever at around 9 months but wasn't on anti-biotics until she was almost 3 and hasn't had them again.

  • She was 7 months old. She just had a cold...runny nose, slight cough...but of course, first time parent, I took her straight to the pediatrician.

    I was told she had a "virus." And, of course, being a first time mom, I thought that was a HUGE deal since I had never heard a cold called a virus before. I remember calling my boss to tell him I wasn't coming in because she was sick and he started to say something (probably that my mom was visiting us at our house so she could easily watch, so why couldn't I come in) and I yelled at him "she has a VIRUS!" LMAO...I must have seemed so psychotic!!

  • My 5 year old was about 8 months old. It was a 24 hr stomach bug. My almost 2 yr old was about a year and half old, just a cold.

  • All 4 of them, without fail, had a minor cold right at 6 months old. Our doc told me is was fairly common.

  • My first 3 kids were pretty healthy. They did get ear infections and colds but that was about it. My last baby was sick from the moment he was born. The minute he was born they took him to the nicu where he was diagnosed with pneumonia.

  • She's been pretty healthy. I think the first time she was sick it was just a cold with a mild fever. She was under a year old.
