Pediatrician 's  Response
Since your baby was premature ,her immunity compared to her peers who were term is going to be poor .See to it that she is vaccinated for both optional as well as compulsory.Her diet should be rich and well balanced with lots of veggies and fruits.You have not mentioned her weight and height these would cacth up at around 18mths and 4yrs respectively.Kids do get around 5-6 infections in a year so don't worry a lot for these minor infections.However get her routine check up at regular intervals.
Take care.
