Spreading germs

IMG_9985

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

  1. I know how you're feeling! You feel so helpless listening to them struggle to breathe while trying to drink from the bottle. It's heart wrenching. Feel better soon, all of you!

  5. Having you for a momma is his biggest blessing!!!!! Poor you, poor B and poor Peanut! A house full of sickies is no fun. And listening to your baby struggle with congestion is awful, especially when they're that young. Hugs and hopes for a quick recovery. :o)

  7. You are a GREAT mommy! Peanut would be lost without you (and he would be wearing mismatched clothing becasue B would be in charge) :)

  8. Okay I'm just going to say it. Even though you're right it's miserable for your babies to be sick... it's also the BEST cuddling time ever. Even now, I love the chance to just hold and cuddle my kids, even though now there are elbows and knees getting in my face since they are so big. And I bet he just loves your comforting... nothing better than a good mama, and you are definitely one! Hope all feel better soon.
