I'm super blessed that my children have all been very healthy.

DD#1 got sick for the first time on her first birthday : / She had a common cold and low grade fever.

DS#1 was over 2 when he got sick for the first time. He got hand, foot and mouth and he wasn't the only one, half the playgroup got it after a trip to a local pool : / Not blaming the pool just saying, lol

DS#2 was also much older when he got sick for the first time. He was 18 months old and got an ear infection.

DD#2 was also older when she got sick for the first time. She was around 16 months and she had gastroenteritis along with me : / Something I've always been very susceptile too. Luckily, hers was very mild, she didn't lose a lot of weight and was only sick for 24 hours compared to mine 72 hours.

I'm so spoiled my children rarely get ill, it's normally me or DH who is ill.

My LO's first illness was a bronchial virus. My oldest suffers from pneumonia every year, im hoping the LO doesnt follow this when she gets older. I also suffered from pneumonia every year when I was a teen.

I don't remember with my older 2. But my youngest was pneumonia, at less than 12 hours old (she aspirated meconium).

My kids all got regular old colds. I don't remember with my older two but my third was only 2 weeks old and my youngest was a month old.

He had a cold when he was about 9 or 10 weeks old. Other than that, he seems to have inherited my crappy sinuses, but that's about it (and that's pretty manageable!)
