It appears DD has her first cold. She was up from 11-1 and again at 4 last night, totally miserable and unable to nurse because she was so stuffed up. Today she was running a low fever so we gave her some tylenol and it seemed to help, but she definitely had periods of being inconsolable. She went to bed an hour early because she didn't take an afternoon nap. Luckily she was able to nurse some during the day and I also gave her a bottle at bedtime because she didn't eat much dinner. Poor kid -- so unhappy and so much snot :(
DH left again for London this evening so it's all me if she's up in the middle of the night. It took the two of us to get the tylenol into her so I'm worried about doing that myself. I also tried the bulb aspirator and the nose frida and she freaked out when I used them. I took her to sit in the bathroom and ran the shower on hot and that seemed to help clear her out a bit. Besides that and keeping up the tylenol, does anyone have any baby cold remedies?
And I think I'm coming down with her cold. This could be a long night :(
