My daughter was hardly sick at all during her first year of life. Since then, and especially in the last few months (in which I've been pregnant) I feel like she's gotten a lot of colds. It hasn't been anything serious, just runny/stuffy nose, cough, but it's frustrating none-the-less because I feel like my breastmilk doesn't provide her with what she needs to fiend off sickness. She eats healthy, sleeps well, and nurses 4 times per day (around going to sleep and waking up). I just don't understand why she's getting sick more often. We're doing the same amount of activites we've been doing, the only thing that's changed is she nurses less and I have less milk. I thought that during the weaning process the immunities in my milk increase, so I don't understand why she'd be getting sick more?
Anyone have any thoughts on this?
