    Default Sick baby... touched out

    Gavin is getting over gastro (or flu or some other nasty virus, we never actually got it diganosed). I stayed home today and the kid was like a leach! I tried hard to be sympathetic to the fact that he hasn't really eaten properly in days, and that his body needs fuel to recover. But I easily spent 5+ hours sitting nursing the kid today!

    I am soo thankful I am able to nurse him and give him all he needs (Naomi was/is also sick and we were having a hard time getting sips of water into her). But I'm just feeling a little touched out right now.

    I can't wait until things are back to normal and I have my happy independant boy back!

    Hang in there. You are lucky to be able to offer him your milk. You are a trooper for hanging in there. With the help of your milk, he will be back to good in no time!!

    Yeah I hope he feels better soon! It does make it hard to get much done when they're sick and need to be held or nursed constantly.
