Unfortunately, a really bad cold was making it's rounds in the town. My daughter got it first and soon after, we were all ill, including Oscar. It came and went and we're all back to our old selves again.

Ella's had 1 cold so far that coincided with her getting her first tooth. I also don't know whether it was partly my fault as she got quite cold at swimming just before she came down with it

I am still breastfeeding Dom and he has not had one real cold. He has a slight sniffle once but not even what I would call a cold. All the other babies I know that have come off boob and now bottlefed have had colds so I am suprised Dom has been OK.

I'm still breastfeeding Ky and he has had a few colds....So much for my antibodies! - Having said that, I look after a two year old 3 days a week and she goes to nursery for 2 days....I know Ky picks up a lot from the little girl ...She seems to have a cough or a cold or tummy upset every few weeks!

I've heard that the antibodies can help them getting a WORSE cold/bug. I was worried when I got ill and I googled and it said if you get a tummy bug etc the antibodies mean if they get it they don't get it so bad.

Brody has had hardly a snuffle so far, touch wood.
