My dd goes to a home daycare, and she was sick quite a bit. It wasn't BAD, but seemed to always have a runny nose, cough or sneezing. I think that is just part of daycare. The good thing is that with each cold they get, they are strengtheing their immune systems for later in life!!

Yup, unfortunately they're all like that. Zoe's been in daycare for 2 weeks, 3 weeks ago as she's been off sick with community acquired pnuemonia & an ear infection this past week. It's horrible when they get sick but I try to look at it as they're building up their immune systems. Believe me, I was NOT thinking this way last week when I hadn't slept for 7 days and felt so bad for Zoe. Thankfully spring is coming so they (hopefully) won't be sick much longer.

yea hes pretty much just got the stuffy nose and cough now, i keep telling myself that too, that its only making his body stronger, even though i don't know if its true or not

Yup, that's the way it is. All those little sweeties nicely sharing their toys and treats means they're also sharing their germs. :) It is true about building immunities earlier. Daycare kids have it a lot easier once they start school because they've already been exposed to a whole range of nasties.
