Our ds got a cold this weekend, and now dh and I both have it. The first time I blew my nose with him in my arms, he started to cry--loud noise, I thought. Now he cries whenever I blow my nose, or even wipe it!

Did your dc ever do this?

Kind of funny, but I have to sneak around to blow my nose!

I was thinking of posting something similar... but it doesn't freak DD out (anymore). If she's standing at the coffee table, she plants both hands on it and looks at me with concern. If she's sitting, she'll lean forward and plant both hands on the floor.

It's cute, but you'd think she'd get used to it with the zillion times a day I blow my nose lately.

This is so funny! this thread is one of the reasons why I LOVE these forums so much. Just last night, around midnight, I was up with DS and had to blow my nose (first cold of the season in our house). He had been quite happy, looking at the stars, but upon blowing my nose, he becamse hysterical. That relegated me to the couch for the night with my drippy nose!

Thanks for being out there and helping me know I'm not alone with these crazy idiosynchracies(sp?) of dear babe.

I have found that, if I have to do it, it's not too bad if I work up to it - a few quiet coughs or blows before the real one. Not so startling that way. Not sure why yawning would be a problem unless you do it really loud
