Baby colds

Hi - not sure if this is the right place for it but my 3.5mo hasn't had a cold yet, whereas all the other babies in my group have had multiple colds.
I read that babies have loads of colds in the first year to build up their immune systems.
Did anyone else's baby not get ill very often?
I wonder if it's because I haven't had a cold for over a year and he's having my milk?

My little girl was the same, she never had a cold till she was 7 months, and I'm not even convinced that was a cold as she was teething sooooo bad!

She was also breastfed! Not sure if this makes a difference smile

Ah that's good to hear. All the babies I know are breastfed too but full of colds. I expect they just get more exposure.
