The Summer of the Cold

No, I'm not talking about the weather. A heat index of 108 degrees tells me otherwise.

What I am speaking of is the ridiculous virus Landon and I have shared this summer. We got it from Randy in June (yes, he was sick, and I still kissed him!). Typical symptoms... cough, cold, sore throat, etc. What is not normal is that it lasted for a month. Finally, this past Monday, my little guy was pretty much back to normal. But guess what he woke up with on Thursday morning? Yup. Another cold. Courtesy of my sweet family this time. ;)

He's normally a great sleeper - goes down between 7/7:30 and gets up between 7/7:30 the next morning... but not when he's sick. Any of you mommies find anything that particularly helps? Other than the typical remedies.. saline drops, humidifier, etc.

I've gotta say, though, for the most part, he's still pretty happy. Definitely not my temperament when I'm feeling icky. Kudos to you, son!

  1. Poor baby! We've done Baby Vick's rub on the bottom of the feet and then socks, which seems to help. Hyland's Cough and Cold syrup (you can get it at Walmart) helps our kids too.
