Just a quick update...

I won't be able to post much the next several days because I'll be attacking the piles of boxes at my new house!

I also have two sick boys, a sick husband, and little energy due to more middle-of-the-night calls from Brandon. He's absolutely miserable with a runny nose and general cold symptoms. Do you know how hard it is to nurse when you can't breathe through your nose??? Poor little guy! I wish there was something I could do to make him better faster or at least alleviate his symptoms, but there's nothing that I can buy at the store to help him since "they" pulled all the baby meds off the shelves the last few months. I suppose the doctor could prescribe something, but I'm really trying to avoid that for now. But if he's not better by this time next week, we're for sure going in...maybe before that if we get desperate. Any tips on how I can help him to breathe better or something I can give him to help him feel better and dry up his nose? Anything would be appreciated!

Well, I'm off to turn off the chicken cooking on my stove and try to get a shower while I can. (Yes, it's VERY late to be taking a shower, but a lack of hot water combined with my fussy boys has kept me from an early shower today.)

Hopefully, if all goes well, the next time I'm able to really blog, I'll be doing so from my new house!!! YAY!!!!

Try Vicks baby rub. Seemed to help my little guy a few weeks ago. I've also heard to put it on the soles of their feet at night. I haven't tried it cause I didn't hear that tip till after the cold was over, but they swore it worked. They also sell saline spray that worked like a charm at clearing up the nasal passages before nursing. Use the spray and then the aspirator a couple minutes later, before nursing. Good luck and best wishes for some sleep filled nights! :-)

Thanks, Donielle. I knew about the trick of rubbing it on his feet, but I hadn't thought about using it! haha I'm going to try tonight. Maybe we'll both rest better. :)

Wish I had some tips to give you, but we don't have children...yet, hopefully soon! But, I'll be praying that they feel better soon. And, congrats on the new house. That's very exciting!

Thanks for all the helpful comments, ladies. Brandon is finally doing better! Now, we just need to work on that slepping...!
