Rarely. We never really go anywhere... The only time we get sick is when my mother decides to visit and her or my sister are sick. It drives me nuts.

 Mine are young two and four years and they don't get more than a cold but once or twice a year. I suspect that will change when the older one starts school next year. We shall see. I don't get sick much either though so maybe they will take after me.

DS is 3 and hardly ever get sick.  He has been sick 3 times.  At 7 months, 11 month and then last week.  Everyone else will be sick and this kid is runnning around feeling awesome.  DD is 7 months and has been sick twice already.

Thankfully rarely. It has been a few years for both of them.

My 3 year old has only been sick once, when he 8 months old.

My 2 year old was sick for the first time last month.

It really depends.

Right now they've been healthy for several weeks. *knock on wood*

Starting mid August through mid fall, they were sick with little colds every two weeks. My kids are in daycare. It cycles through the year with periods of healthiness for several weeks, and back to back colds for several weeks. They get extremely sick with fevers etc very rarely.

*again, knock on wood*

My younger two tend to get colds a lot in the winter, but nothing really serious.
