My 1st kid used to get sick almost everymth till i have to take unpaid leave before the year end. She was 3 yrs old when i send her to childcare. Either due to flu, stomach virus, hmfd (ever got it twice in a year), cough, etc. her immunity is poor eventhough I started her on multivitamins, supplements. But I find that probiotics works well for her stomach problems. She have this bad reflux since she a baby. But as she goes to pri 1 her immunity gets better w/o supplements. I just need to make sure she have a balanced diet. Even goes to hospital specialist but find no problem. Maybe its the childcare ctr not clean or my child could be stress that is why her immunity is low. But it a different case for my 2nd kid who was from infantcare (different childcare ctr from my 1st) till she is 3 yrs she have not much problem only once due to chickenpox. Both my kid ever hit almost 40degreeC but ec react diffrently. My 1st will be like a jelly even when her temp is above 38.5. but my 2nd still can run around when she was 39.5 which is y usually I wont know she was having fever or sick till I touch her skin.

It's quite common for kids to fall sick when they start childcare and they are more expose to germs there. You can give some supplements daily to boost their immune. I used to give my kids sambucol (http://www.iherb.com/Sambucol-Black-Elderberry-For-Kids-Syrup-Berry-Flavor-7-8-fl-oz-230-ml/57291). It is very good especially if your child gets runny nose. The other supplement I gave was childlife first defense (http://www.iherb.com/ChildLife-First-Defense-4-fl-oz-118-5-ml/6367). Also feed them lots of fruits and vegetables. If your child is prone to fever, maybe you can consider boiling some barley once every fortnight.

I think initially all kids will go through a phase of often feeling sick but it should stabilize in a years time. When they fall sick their immunity get lower and they become more prone to falling sick again so give it some time. But every 2-3 weeks seems too often. Is the childcare doing their due diligence to disinfect the classroom and measure kids temp? Pls feedback to them. You can also try giving sambucol to your kid as this is known to boost their immunity. Get your kid out in the sun everyday too. Sunlight is necessary for stronger kids too

How long has your kid been in childcare? Initially it gets a little tough as our kid needs time for their immune system to build up. I will give lots of fruits and vegetable for vitamins and healthy diet. Introduce probiotics for a healthy gut. I also give multivitamin for them daily

It took me about a year for my boy to settle down. He had fever way too often. Try to give him vitamins to help boost the immune system. Fruits, water and vegetables as well.
