Sniffly noses and coughs are set to run rampant in the coming months. And that means that mams will have to be on their A-games to mind the little ones.

It’s no surprise that a new survey has found that over 50 per cent of Irish mothers have to miss work due to everyday childhood illnesses!

Yes, 64 per cent of women were forced to call sick out of work.

The burden of caring for sick children often falls on mothers, with 64 per cent of them taking on this responsibility compared to 26 per cent of fathers.

The research, conducted nationwide, also revealed that nearly half of children in Ireland are absent from school for four or more days each year due to various health issues.

Of course, parents would want to make sure that their little ones’ immune systems are bolstered so that they won’t be out sick at all!
