Sick

I have decided one of the hardest things as a new mommy (and probably forever as a mommy) is trying to figure out how to help your child when you don't totally know what is wrong. This weekend, Collin has been a little under the weather.... he has this little cough that just breaks my heart, and in 15 minutes he has spit up three times, and had 2 blowouts, and just had a hard time smiling. It has made me realize how grateful I am that he isn't under the weather or this sad all the time, because him being so sad, makes me sad. I just hold him and rock him and give him lots of loves. Any ideas on other help from other mommies out there? I'm just glad it's the weekend and I have been able to be home with him :)

In my experience, unless she has a fever or rash or sign of some sort that something is WRONG and she is really SICK, when Quinn is feeling crappy that's really the only thing that she wants- to be loved and held, pretty much what I want when I'm sick!

I feel for you.....my little one has the beginnings of her 2nd cold. Her first one lasted only 2 days so we were lucky. This one though, she woke up every couple hours completely stuffed up. I felt so helpless.....and am soooo tired today.

Let'd hope they both get better soon.

If he has a stuffed up nose, the best solution that I have found is those saline drops. It helps with the cough, too, 'cuz the drainage isn't dripping down his throat. He won't like it, though. :) I hope baby Collin is feeling better!
