Carter’s First Cold :(

October 1, 2011


Carter has his first cold! Poor baby has a runny nose and a cough. He has been sleeping a lot, which I guess is a good thing. It surprised me how sad it makes me to see my poor baby sniffling and sneezing. I know it is just a cold so I am trying to be relaxed and non-dramatic. We took him to the doctor just to be sure that it was just a cold and to find out how best to treat it. The doctor said that he is too young to take any cold medicine (already knew that) and that colds are very common and there wasn’t much we can do. On a positive note, we did get to weigh him and found out he weighs a healthy 15lbs!

The nose aspirator has been a blessing. We call it the “snot sucker.” Carter HATES it! But it gets out his snot and that helps his cough. Right now he is snuggled asleep with the humidifier. My sweet baby. Hope he feels better. PS I am sick too!

LESSON LEARNED: Nose aspirators (snot suckers) are priceless for baby’s first cold.
