I Thought Vaccinations Were Bad...

a sick baby is worse! Baby has a cold. Unfortunately, I think she got it from me. She has such bad post-nasal drip, a cough and a sneeze. She doesn't have a fever at least. She's been mostly sleeping it off. We keep her on her tummy pillow during the day which makes her throw up a lot of ick and makes her nose drain more ick. Right now, she's sleeping upright in her swing.

We feel so bad because she's so sick, and there's nothing we can do. The squeezie (bulb syringe) is her enemy. She hates it, but it clears her nose so well. It's such a dilemma - does she want to breathe or feel like her brain is being sucked through her nose?

I'm sure this won't last long, and I know she'll forget being sick within minutes of a full recovery. In the meantime, we feel (almost) worse than she does and will never forget her being so sick so quickly. *sniff*
