I got a cold 2 1/2 weeks ago. It's better but I still have it. I caught something else, and now I have a fever and feel yucky all over. I can barely eat or drink anything. My 8 month old caught the cold 2 weeks ago, he is coughing less often, but still often, he has a flemmy wheezy junky cough that he coughs up mucus and gags on it, a rattley breathing, he is gumpy but does have happy moments. He just got a fever now too, I'm not sure if it's my bug or a secondary infection from the cold. My older 2 kids have the same cold and the same cough but no fever.
Ok, so that what we have going on the last 2 1/2 weeks.
Now James has been nursing 2 too 3 times at night again and more often during the day. But his cloth diapers are down to only 5 wets a day and he has lost 1 pd, which is alot bc he is a short, tiney boy. VERY small. I can't SEE the pd he lost very well bc he still looks simular but he lost 1/2 pd in 2 weeks and the the other 1/2 the last 2 days (according to our scale which is just a digital scale that we all use so it might not be the best.)
I'm really worried that he isn't getting enough BM in and that my supply is suffering bc I've been so sick the past 2 1/2 weeks.
What can I do to bring it up more and get that pd back on him?
I will be taking him to the Dr if he is still feverish tomarrow or his cold gets worse tonight.
