As I work full time now i put my daughter(2ys) into childcare and have found that it’s a great place for her to socialize and be around other kids.

However, with more interaction comes more bugs… colds, coughs, fever. I know that they will come into contact with these types of things, but it seems to happen so often.

I know that she just has to build up her immune system and this will help her, but can’t help but feel guilty about leaving her there. I wonder if there are any other parents out there that feel the same? It’s just so hard to see your little one sick.

  • I think every mother out there feels the same. Its an inbuilt thing that we feel their pain but we can’t wrap them in cotton wool….we can only do our best to teach them and be there to guide them but ultimately we have to let them go.


  • Like you said, it will build her immune system up. So long as you keep her healthy at home, with plenty of fruit and veges and maybe even some multi-vitamins, she will be fine. All good, love xx


  • They do get it over it! Chin up.
