Sick Frequency of Toddler
My son is almost 2 1/2.
I am getting concerned that he gets sick too often. Our doctor keeps saying that it's normal for a toddler to get sick 8-12 times per year, however, my son is getting sick every 2 weeks.
He is literally sick twice a month every month. So a little less than half the month he is constantly fighting the flu, colds, infections, etc.......
I understand toddlers get sick, but this frequency is alarming. Comparing notes with other parents, and their kdis are not sick as often. He's been on anti-biotics twice (for a short period of time).
Is this normal? Should I be getting a 2nd opinion from a doctor?
Should I look into providing vitamins or supplements to boost his immune system?
Any input is appreciated.
