Babies, toddlers and young children get sick – it’s part of our body’s development. Exposure to childhood diseases and germs makes your toddler’s immune system stronger and more equipped to fight the next invader. Ensure your toddler has plenty of rest, fresh fruit and vegetables, love and attention, fresh air and adequate sleep to help them avoid and get through those sick times. Trust your gut instinct (otherwise known as the second brain) when deciding whether or not to take your toddler to the doctor.
Your toddler can rapidly deteriorate in health and they can also recover very quickly from illness. It is important to be alert to changes in your toddler’s behaviour and general health and well-being so you can monitor and aid their recovery. If you notice any of the symptoms listed below you should seek medical advice. Even if there is nothing serious found, peace of mind and knowledge can be enough to make a visit worthwhile. Parenting is a lot about gaining confidence and knowledge for the next time something happens.
