Hey guys...
have any of you been sick since your wee babes were born? I have some kind of throat, chest, runny nose thing going on and now wee oliver (5 weeks tommorow) has a runny nose. I am hoping he doesnt get the rest of it but of course I am worried sicker..lol...anyone else come down with fluey like stuff and breastfeeding?

Oh, bummer, Phoenix. This week I am dealing with plugged milk ducts, so I got a taste of feeling sick while caring for a babe -- I can only imagine how hard it would be to care for four!! Hope you feel better.

Not right now, but when DS was 8 mos. old, my entire extended family (thanks to holiday togetherness) came down with the worst stomach bug EVER. DS was the only person who didn't get it. I chalk it up to him getting my antibodies via breastfeeding.

I'd guess that Oliver has a better chance of NOT getting sick because you're BF him.

I hope you feel better soon. It stinks to be sick when you've got kids to care for!

We all had whatever intestinal virus has been going around--fevers, vomiting, diarrhea. Everyone in the house got sick except the babe. Got to be antibodies and bfing.
Feel better.
