I wasn't prepared. I had no idea. This cold (combined with teething and immunizations) has been the hardest thing we've come up against yet. We were already sleep deprived because she was waking so much while teething and now we are taking turns holding her all night while she wakes every 30 minutes and starts crying. She has been throwing up because she can't breathe and no amount of steam shower, nasal spray, humidifier, nose frida or cold tablets are doing the trick. She throws up whenever we try to give her Motrin and insists on spitting out the Tylenol. There were a few hours last night that I wasn't sure I was going to make it (I have the cold too). How did I have no clue how awful it would be when she got her first cold? Truly praying my way through this one. My poor miserable baby.
