thank you all for your suggestions! im looking into the links you posted Ray- my pdf is not working right.
as for the humidifier, my dd sleeps in a big bed and would be too curious about it- so i need to work that out somehow.
today is day 8. i have it as a head cold, achy and fatigued. Sara (2yr old) has had a fever for 3 days now,managed by tylenol and motrin- but lingering to do its job; and she has a clear runny nose, aches and goes thru spells of malaise. one min running about, the next crying from aches and pains.
shes no longer vomiting, but she is terribly congested. her cough is terrible, too.
and.. my 4 mo has it as a headcold, chest congestion, cough, too. shes on straight breastmilk and only vomits occasionally- not like Sara did and not spitup either.
The only thing keeping us sane is peanut butter cookies, and laying on the couch watching movies.
I cut up lots of onions to get our nasal passages flowing better. I also made some sauce with lots of garlic for Sara and I to eat.
I will start having Sara eat some yogurt too. I am just worried about the phlegm.
Any other home remedies that you could suggest? I really am trying to not use the tylenol too much.
Mama to 5 babies. UCer, too!
