Well it's official, Spence has a runny nose and either has become allergic to the dog or the unseasonably cooler temps and then random warm day have given him a cold. I managed to make it to 8 months before his immune system gave in.
I have to admit I am scared. Colds/Allergies are no fun when you are an adult, I imagine as a baby they are even less so. Mainly because you can't blow your nose or tell anyone if your throat hurts. *sigh* He has been a trooper today, mostly just sneezing and being patient as Daddy and I wipe his nose. I have him sleeping on a pillow to elevate his wee little head in hopes he doesn't get too stopped up.
This is all so foreign to me...should I get a humidifier? Should I get up every few hours and give him Tylenol? Can we still give a child Vick's Vapor Rub? Um...HELP!
This next pic sums up things for all of us:
