Colds and other nasties

Just when you think it can’t get any worse, along comes a cold.  Loudboy was up all last night, coughing and snotting all over me (the downside to breastfeeding is that I am the comforter of choice, leaving his dad to roll over and try and get a bit of sleep in between coughing fits).  Now, other mums speak of the glories of Medised, which helps clear up snot and knocks babies out for hours.  Unless you’re Loudboy, who is immune to sleep-inducing drugs.  Two large doses of Medised during the night had little effect other than a gigantic nappy explosion at about 6am.    I left him muttering and staring moodily at a rice cake.  It’s going to be a fun few days…

    I remember giving my son some benadryl for a cold/allergies and he slept for 5 hours at a time… I ran in there and GOT HIM UP because I was afraid he was dead!!! And he was one of the most AWFUL sleepers I know!! STUPID STUPID STUPID I was… he wouldn’t go back to sleep after that!!!

    good thing you’re not over here in the good ol’ US of A because they just recalled pretty much every cold/cough/flu medicine for kids under 6.
