Re: I guess daycare wasn't the right choice for us. :(
I've been sick A LOT in my life.. the only thing I figure is from every single virus and sickness I've had, my body has built up immunities so I can't get those same strains again.. so, he is getting those properties from my milk and it keeps him from getting those stains that I am now immune to. If you are a mama that really hasn't been sick too much throughout your life, then maybe you don't have as many immunities built up, so the child can catch more in spite of you nursing? I don't know.. but it makes sense anyways. My older kids used to catch everything under the sun btw.. however, the longest I bf was the 3rd for 6 mo.. the first two was for 2 months... Another factor is they were all 3 in daycare because I had no choice but to work back then. I didn't know the more they get sick, it protects them from leukemia. I will have to do some googling on that..
Thanks mama's! I am going to do some phone calls this morning and see what else I can find out there to do for him..
