My youngest son (1.5 years old) who has been paleo since birth is consistently sick and when I mean consistently I am talking just about every other week. It first started with basic congestion and then he began to get ear infections. We had tubes put in his ears which helped with the infections, but he continued with the congestion, which has now caused him to get upper respiratory infections and most recently RSV. I've tried just about everything I can think of with diet and also added Vit D, C, and probiotics. What's the most frustrating is the amount of antibiotics and steriods (for respiratory issues) he's been on over the past 6-8 months. The only thing I can figure is he is not fully recovering before returning to daycare?? However, I didn't have the same issues with my oldest son and he wasn't Paleo at this age.
Are some people just genetically predisposed to get sick or infected with virus more than others and should I expect this to continue throughout his life?
PS....again it usually starts with congestion and turns into something worse, so I don't believe he's got some serious issue going on. He's blood work is normal.
