I am Sick :(

10 Apr

Woke up sick yesterday morning – swollen throat, runny nose… It got worse today – pretty bad cough.

Dr. Google says that Timothy is getting the antibodies for my cold in my breastmilk – babies often are the only family members to not get sick. I hope so.

In any case, I minimized my contact with him. I feel bad about moving him from playpen to bouncer to swing to tummy time mat to crib with mobile to playpen (and so on and on and on) without much interaction. But I don’t have the energy and I really hope he doesn’t get sick. He already has mucus problems as it is.

On another note, for the second day in a row, he slept for 9 hours, from 9:30 to 6:30. Yay!

    Wow, that sleep schedule is impressive! I hope you feel better soon. That’s so interesting about babies not getting sick. I hope it holds true–I learn something new from you everytime!

      Not exactly NOT getting sick, but likely to not get sick.
      Well, so far so good.

    I sure hope you are feeling better now.

    And hey, babies do catch their mothers’ infections…so you did good by minimizing the contact…Daddy dear can do double duty till you feel better.

      they do, but for breastfed babies the risk isn’t too high. So far so good!
