Vent post: My 9.5 month old started daycare on Tue this week and already has a runny nose so staying at home. Cranky as hell and just doesn’t want to lie down and wants to be in our arms at all times! We are going to see our pediatrician later today to rule out anything else, but nothing prepared me how soon the daycare germs hit! I know there is no way to fast forward immunity and we all have to endure till we get the immunity but it’s hard for the little guy and us parents!
