Re: I guess daycare wasn't the right choice for us. :(

I know it sucks, but getting all those colds in the early years is actually GOOD for kids. A recent study show that kids who go to daycare or are exposed to frequent colds (lo'swhose older siblings are in preschool etc) have a dramatically reduced incidence of childhood leukemia.
Being exposed to germs and viruses is actually important in the development of the immune system-- maybe that's why babies crawl around on the floor putting everything in their mouthes? Mothernature's way I guess

Not saying he should go or not and those people sound nasty, just that getting colds/viruses has a goo dpurpose too.
