This is the first time HB has been even remotely sick. Last night, I stayed up a little later to watch a movie and HB woke up crying. I went and fed him and put him to bed, but he cried harder. So I brought him down and we finished the movie. I fed him again and put him to bed.
In the middle of this hour long ordeal, I noticed he was congested big time. I could hear him swallowing mucus with the milk. This morning it was the same thing. We slept in bed together until Hubby came in at 7:30 and woke us up. I yelled at him. Not my finest sleep-deprived hour, but I did mention in the rules about me that disturbing my sleep=bad idea for you.
Now that we're fully awake. HB has a slight cough and he's still congested. I saw some snot on my breast and some when wiping his face from his solids breakfast. He has a runny nose, but won't let me use a tissue to wipe it.
I suppose that I should have seen it coming. This past weekend was hell and it hasn't gotten better. He also lost his appetite, which I know is a sign of illness. I think HB has a cold. Fortunately, Mammita is not here today. HB does have a doctor's appointment on Friday, but in the meantime I'm going to call the pedi and get advice from the nurse. You'd think this would be a no brainer, but since I've never had to deal with an infant with a cold, I'd rather ask the expert. I'll let you know what she says.
