Cold remedies for baby :(
Ok...so I'm over it now and he's got it! It's so sad when he coughs- his little tongue sticks out and he hacks away for a few seconds and then tears roll down his face...
He's not at all hungry (he only nursed a total of 20 minutes since 6am this morning and it's after 10pm now.)
He's stuffy- so I squirted his nose with some saline and sucked it out with the bulb a few minutes later- didn't get much back out.
No fever. Just general malaise with a dry-ish cough and a stuffy nose and lots of crying (I'm just sure he's trying to say "what the eff is going on mama?!?!")
So- does anyone treat their infants with anything? Vicks works wonders for me and Mohamed, but now I'm paranoid about it. I used to rub it into Mohamed's chest with a massage type motion and he loved it and it cleared us both up!
I hope it doesn't get any worse, but I want to be prepared if it does! (It lasted almost a week for me).
Are our only options steam bath and saline? My guess is yes, but I'm hoping I'm wrong!
