Is it normal for your DS to constantly have colds?

Hi - does anyone else's baby seem to have one cold after another? My DS is 8 months old and just gets one after another and none of the other babies we know seem to get ill like this! Am so fed up of him being blocked up and miserable poor thing and it makes sleeping difficult because he can't suck a dummy. Does anyone know why some babies get colds more than others? Oh, and he's breastfed which is meant to give him a good immune system!

Totally normal - building up an immune system that will make him stronger - my son always has a cold it seems and they last for weeks.

My children both have colds all the time. They're at nursery though. DD still uses a dummy - I use vicks to help her sleep at night.
