Your problem is not just typical, it is a kind of a cut-off of modern society. Often a sick child is not an exception to the rules, but a characteristic feature of the baby at the age you mentioned above. Let's look at all aspects of this problem and how to solve them.

If a healthy child from admission to adolescence is constantly sick, then it means his body is in conflict with the environment. The adaptive period, usually not exceeding half a year, has long since passed, the main childhood collective illnesses no longer pester the child, but still he always has snot, cough and other negative conditions? Then you have only three ways: do not take the child to the kindergarten, "reconcile" him with the environment, or change the environment itself in such a way that it is comfortable for the child.

The first way we discard immediately, because you are working and want to lead an active activity further. Therefore, it is necessary to carry out a number of activities in two areas.

Adaptive-psychological direction

Three main factors contributing to the frequent illnesses of the child in the kindergarten are the state of his immunity, the general group health of the collective and the psychological state of the baby. You can influence only two, collective health of the group is the responsibility of the head / doctor / educator in the team.

What can you do? First and foremost, properly set up the child for a hike in the kindergarten, do not use psychological pressure, give your child more time at home, so that he does not feel deprived and more relaxed about his temporary separation from his mother.

In the kindergarten prepare suitable for the weather things, because the teachers will put on the child in what you provide. Improper selection of things threatens hypothermia, or vice versa, too much heating up of the child's body, which provokes a cold.

Live with a new flora and its carriers for children, it's often not so simple: your baby can have snot, even if all the children in the group are completely healthy. How to deal with this? Start with your own apartment, as well as hanging out outside your kindergarten!


The best option is to give the child a personal room that is subject to wet cleaning without strong disinfectants.

A humidifier is mandatory, as well as maintaining a normal temperature for the child with a humidity of 60-70 degrees and a tempo of 18-20 degrees Celsius. All books here should be behind glass, toys on boxes, and regular intensive airing will allow to achieve a normal microclimate.

All varnishes, paints, deodorants can not be used in the children's room.


Sleep the child in a cool and humid room in a warm and warm clothes. Bedding - ideal cleanliness, washed in baby powder.


It is better to give baby sweets a natural, while avoiding the high content of sucrose. Refuse from regular snacks, create a diet at home, similar to kindergarten. Do not make your child eat if it does not want it. The diet is nutritious, but not too diverse, with a maximum of domestic products.


Does not restrict the baby in water, however do not give him sweet fizzy drinks. Optimum types of liquids - non-carbonated mineral water, fruit tea, mors. It's all room temperature.
