Today was MISERABLE.
Coughing all last night, sad baby all day long.
We spent some serious cuddle/nursing time together today, trying to get it all out of our systems. It's so awful to watch a sad sick baby. She just looks so confused & hurt when she can't stop coughing.
I managed to haul our icky selves to the health food shop to grab some rosemary, lavender & eucalyptus oils and boy howdy, do they ever help. I sometimes forget the power of aromatherapy -- I really need to make it my first defense from now on.
Thanks for all of your kind messages & well wishes -- hopefully we'll ACTUALLY be on the mend soon! I'm not sure our noses can take much more blowing!
Note: The boy is completely healthy without even the slightest hint of a cold. This makes me pretty happy, however. I'm not sure I could take care of TWO babies at once & live to tell about it.
