Ds is 22 mths and has had four tummy bugs this year so far. He is not just sick once, but lots over a few days.

An hour ago he was just really sick. He was then whimpering in pain.

Just seems alot really. Am slightly paraniod about hygiene and use anti bac everywhere. He goes to nursery one day a week now as have cut his hours down as my mum looks after him two days a week.

Anyone else have this or any advice

Think its quite common. We have 4dc and 1 seemed to get everything when he was little but has eased now. If you overdo hygiene etc it can be bad, kids need to build up immune system by being exposed to germs. Mine have always played in garden (muck, mud etc), with worms, beach, stony sand at park etc.
