Babies: 6 - 9 Months

Sick baby tips needed!

My son is 6.5mo and has the flu. Any tips y’all have for helping him cope would be greatly appreciated over the next few days. He slept all day on my chest today but we can’t do that every day. We took him to the pediatrician and got him on Tamiflu, so hopefully it won’t be long before he feels better.

  • Similar to on your chest, you can elevate baby's mattress and turn on a humidifier. Lots of rest. And a nose sucker
  • Thank you! I think the humidifier was a great help, good suggestion! We also bought a nose sucker that’s better than the little bulb they gave us at the hospital. He ended up with a sinus infection after he got over the flu and the sucker was much needed.
