i'm sure it happens but i don't know of any infant this young who has been sick. I feel awful that my 3 week old DD is coming down with a cold from her 2 year old brother. I had tried to keep him out of group stuff the last few weeks for this exact reason - to avoid illness - but we had one playdate last week and i think he picked it up from his friend.
DD is doing OK some congestion and dry cough. So far it isn't interfering with her nursing. She is sleeping ok (like a newborn). I am a basket case about it, just hoping it doesn't get worse. I am wearing her constantly b.c i don't want her out of my sight in case breathing gets compromised.
Ped says just typical "supportive care" - hot steam, saline drops.
Anyone ever have a sick newborn? please give me some encouragement that we will get through this! (hormones still raging so not helping my worrying!).
