The poor thing woke up last Thursday with a stuffy nose and having trouble breathing through her nose. So for the past week we've been using our Boogie Wipes, baby saline, and suction for her nose like they're going out of style! We've also elevated her bassinet and run the cool mist vaporizer each night to help her little cough. Thankfully she hasn't run a fever and has wanted to sleep and eat a lot. We did go see the doctor yesterday since she was starting to gag some from the cough and the congestion didn't seem to be getting much better. She ruled out any fluid in the lungs and determined her oxygen levels are right where they should be--so it's just a regular cold that she inferred Adeline probably got from being around all the relatives at Christmas. Poor baby.
The good news is she's still been our happy, sweet baby that smiles like crazy!
Now I'm dealing with her cold...guess that's what I get for wiping a snotty nose gobs of times throughout the day! That's okay, I'll handle this cold with pride. This mommy job is the best there is...even if it means wiping boogs and getting those germs!
