Mothering while sick with a cold

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

is no fun at all! Kait will be 3 months tomorrow and I have a miserable head cold and cough. I had mostly forgotten how ridiculously unfair it is to care for a wee one while feeling awful. 
So I am having a pity party, while guzzling elderberry syrup and trying to get my olders to help a bit.

Right there with you, mama! I'm trying to keep everyone entertained without leaving my bed.

Feel better soon!!

I am too! ugh.  I got sick and then Griffin got sick. Having a 3 month old baby that is coughing and is mad that he can't breathe while nursing and sleeping just sucks. I was not looking forward to my first time taking care of a sick baby and it happened much sooner than I expected.

Huh. Must be in the air. I've been falling asleep randomly during the day because Rowan is snuffling his way through the night and mad about it. There is no sleep for me. My DH has a major cough that's going around and after my last baby was hospitalized with rsv I'm petrified that Rowan will get it so DH hasn't held his baby for almost two weeks.
My biggles have a cold too. I feel like I'm facing doom when anyone approaches me...

Knock on wood I don't have it. I'm just way sleep deprived.

Hope everyone feels better soon!

Feel better! My only issue is allergies, but our whole family is now snoring and it stinks.
