My baby has his first cold. It started last week with the runny, stuffy nose and then continued with the cough and fever. We took him to the doctor just in case and found he has fluid in his ears. It's not an infection but the doctor gave us drops for pain.
I woke up feeling generally icky and B isn't feeling to hot either. Something to do with Peanut not listening to me when I tell him to cover his mouth.
Is there anything more pathetic than a baby who can't breathe thru his nose? He has such a hard time drinking his bottle. I'm in pain just listening to his cough.
I think he is feeling better and I have to say for the most part he is still a happy, smiley baby. He even lets me suction his nose without putting up a fight.
Of course, I spend most my time hovering over him with tissues and ear drops and whatnot.
Poor kid, I don't know what is worse for him... having a cold or having me for a mother. :P
