I babysit a 16 month old Toddler for about 3 months now. For that duration, she has been healthy for about one week. I am so frustrated with this because I have two children home too. One of which is an infant. Her mother told me that the doctor said that it is not contageous. (I had to insist she go to the doctor.) I find this hard to believe. She has been sick for a month now and my two kids already got her original cold. I have just never heard of a child being sick for that long...with a general cold. I also do not suffer from sinus problems so I was hoping one of you could fill me in on this. Thank you in advance.
