Bumby has his first real cold. He had an under-the-weather day when he was a little newborn, but this is his first full-fledged cold, complete with a stuffy nose, coughing and sneezing. The little coughs are adorable, even at 3 am. Poor bug.
I have been babying him by lying down with him for all his naps and letting him nurse as much as he wants. I decided not to remove him from the boob this morning and he nursed from 6 am to 9 am. It’s more important to me that he rests and naps well so he gets better than that I get up from this spot on my bed. Also, in all fairness, he was up 4 times last night coughing and sneezing, so I’m a little tired myself. Anyway, breastmilk is full of anti-bodies, right? There must be a reason for the compulsive nursing (other than comfort and the leg rolls).
We are going to venture out to yoga today. It’s only an hour, and he is on day 3 of the cold, so I am thinking he’s not contagious anymore. I’ll bring a blanket this time so that we keep our germs (and throw-up) to ourselves. Also, we pre-registered. But other than yoga, naps are the order of the day over here.
