Alex Has His First Cold

Can you believe that Alex hasn't been sick one day that we've had him. He wasn't sick at all during our visit trip, and he hasn't been sick since we picked him up. I know that is unusual.

Well - it's over. He's sneezing, coughing and has a runny nose. I don't think it's from daycare as he's been starting to get this over the past couple of days. Jay has been sick this week, so I think he got it from Jay! (or at least that's who I'm blaming)

He didn't sleep very well again today. He kept waking himself up with his little cough and sneezing and then couldn't go back to sleep. Poor guy.

He doesn't have a fever....so we'll see how he does. I don't need to take him to the doctor, do I? I'm not one to go to the doctor for colds/flu. I usually just let them run their course. I guess I'm not sure what to do about a little guy!! :)

Poor little baby. I'd say you don't need to take him to the doc unless he gets a high fever or the cough gets really bad and might be in his lungs.

Ohh, poor Alex!!! Don't you just feel so helpless when their sick. I would only visit the dr. if the cough gets worse. The vapor baths really soothed Liv, that's my only advice. Oh and sleep when he does, a baby's cold takes allot out of YOU.
Hope he feels better soon
