My baby just turned one. He has been sick non stop since the end of October.

First it was strep that everyone else had and the doctors wouldn't test or treat him because 'it will go away by itself'
That turned into an rsv cold that dragged on and turned into viral pneumonia. We started antibiotics then stopped when we got the viral results.
Which turned into bacterial pneumonia 2 weeks later. So we started antibiotics again.
That turned into a terrible cough and then a week later he caught the flu and still has a terrible cough and he just got an ear infection.

I've been at the doctor at least twice a week the past two months.

Every time he gets sick, it takes him much longer than the other kids to recover. He's weak, has no appetite and seems to be in pain every time he coughs.

I'm running a humidifier at ~50% humidity.
I tried giving him elderberry and didn't see any difference. Anything else I can try?

He's already taking probiotics with the antibiotics. What else can boost his immune system?

Thank you in advance!

Have you been giving him D vitamin?

Olive- if you’re still following this thread- curious if you saw the immunologist? Going down that route now...

And op, hope your baby is feeling better.
