Not even 4 months yet.

i was trying to hold off the inevitable, but it's here. davy is sick. she caught the cold that harper has. i was hoping she was going to be a little older for her first sickness, but.....nope nopeity nope. she started show signs yesterday. she was acting fussy and getting a little snorty. it was a rough night, partly because i was over analyzing things...was that a weird breath? is she too hot? is she lethargic, wait she should be sleeping now anyways. today she took a looooong nap and then i've just been holding her ever since. i'm trying to think of what you do for a infant with a cold, not much huh? tylenol, humidifier, saline drops? anything I'm forgetting? i'm in touch with her pediatrician and endocrinologist, it's basically davy watch 2010. if you could, give davy a little prayer, she would greatly appreciate it.

Try Johnsons Soothing Vapor Bath...with eucalyptus, rosemary & menthol. Thats something I always keep on hand. I also always have Vicks BabyRub. A little rub on the chest under a onesie or even down the soles of their feet (with socks on afterwards) is so soothing.

I remember my little guy getting his first ear infection at 2 months old and I felt terrible. Kids aren't supposed to get sick so soon, right? (Unless, of course, they have sweet big brothers to bring it home to them.)

I pray that Davy gets over this quickly and that it causes no complications for her.

Poor little Davy bug. I hope she feels better soon.

We do chest pt to piper sometimes and it helps break up any secretions/mucus in her chest. She loves it and it usually helps. I bet you could find out online if that might relieve her or soothe her.

Good luck!

I hope she is feeling better today..Poor little Davy girl

I had to laugh when you wrote 'Davy watch 2010' because that is exactly how I felt last night when I was babysitting because I was over analyzing each breath too.
