4 year old sick - how do I stay healthy??

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

My 4 year old ds has been coughing non-stop today, he's snotty, has a slight fever and is lethargic and miserable.  As bad as I feel for him, I am also feeling scared for myself - I am 37w5d and do not want to be sick going into labor!  I'm afraid by the time this runs it's course in him I'll manage to catch it!

 

So - please share with me any and all tips for preventing illness!!  Safe for pregnancy of course!  Loading up on vitamin C, garlic - what else?  I have to take care of him, so I am getting coughed all over and cuddled by him and all his germies and cleaning up snotty nose wipes.  How can he fight this quickly?  I also want to keep 2 year old dd and dh healthy...basically get this thing out of our house!!!!

Sounds like you are doing what you need. Wash your hand frequently?
Best!

Sorry to hear this, Mama. We just had a nasty one run through our house too. Nothing like nonstop coughing that makes you pee! Hope you avoid it. I would add a probiotic, keep sugar in diet to a minimum, echinecea, and vitamin D.
