My 3 year daughter is constantly sick. She doesnt go to daycare and stays home with me. I also have a 9 year old daughter who I homeschool and she is rarely sick. Along with her heartburn that she takes daily medication, she is sick at least every 2 weeks. either with a cold, or cough, or ear infection or stomach flu. I cant help but wonder if its because I breastfed my older daughter and not my 3 year old and she has a weaker immune system because of it? My older also doesnt eat dairy and the younger one does. Any suggestions or reasons why she could always be getting sick?? My house is always clean so it cant be that. This is so frustrating and I feel so bad for her.View Thread
