Well we tried to do daycare for our 11month (7.5mo CA) and while he loved it, he became very ill one too many times. We have had one Apparent Life Threatening Event that landed us in Children's hospital overnight, and the latest is a severe upper resp. infection that has lasted 1 month, 2 ear infections, two rounds of antibiotics, abuterol nebulizer and most recently flovent nebulizer. Our pediatrician was so optimistic about Isaac's immunity, but the last month as proved us all wrong. We have to pull him out of daycare and limit his exposure this winter. We have found a great nanny that I think we will hire full time, but are disappointed that he won't get to see his friends from daycare. It was a really nice place and he developed so much from being around other children. I am sad for our little guy, but feel so much better knowing he won't be exposed to so many germs especially with the H1n1 lurking around. He has been too ill to get the vaccine and its not available anyway. I wonder if the pediatrician will want him to get Synagis again this winter now that he is on two nebulizer treatments.
