It’s not surprising that it’s hard being a mom, but these numbers are staggering.
According to a new survey by Baltimore’s own Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, the average mom gets sick 324 times during her kid’s childhood.
That comes out to 18 times a year.
Here’s the breakdown of those 324 illnesses: 108 sore throat, 108 runny noses, 54 colds, 36 stomach bugs or cases of diarrhea, 12 cases of the flu, and six cases of lice and other random illnesses.
The survey also found the average mom only feels totally healthy 13 days a month.
