I have a few children and the past two- three months one child has been sick each week for a day or two. I've had to take off so much work!
Is this normal? What do you do? Dh can't help me- his job doesn't allow.

It may be more cost effective for you to hire a nanny at home who’s willing to stay with sick kids plus whatever toddlers had been in daycare.

That's sounds so stressful!
Maybe consider giving them immune boosting vitamins and suppliments each morning throughout the winter. Such as large doses ( research exact amounts) of vitamin C and D and a probiotic. If they are having sugar in their cereal or candy, you can try to replace it with savory options. Sugar depresses the immune system too.
Good luck!

I second the poster above. Any time my kids keep getting sick, especially the little ones that catch everything, I give immune boosting nutrients.

Give Supplements and wash their hands frequently and keep nails short!
Don't let them share cups, utensils or bathwater. Use paper goods and paper towels.
If it's strep, work with your doctor to figure out if one child gets strep without symptoms and spreads it to the others.
