His First illness

Nicholas was down with flu and cough on Tuesday. No matter how we avoid contact of the two and keeping good ventilation, the germs/ virus some how still got to baby Ryan. He had stuffy nose yesterday and had a little difficulties feeding.

His stuffy nose got worse today, struggling to breathe and suck at the same time. Seeing him this way makes my heart ache. And sometimes, his mucus would flow backward and he got choke on it and cough...heehee..the way he cough just like his brother when Nicholas was a baby...the old man" type of cough.

Brought him to Paed, got a nose drop for him. He is very co-operative with it, no fussing/ crying when i drip the nose drop into his nostrils. After applying, he seems better. Hope he recovers soon. Oh, we were told to monitor his temperature too. Should his temperate goes above 37.5 degrees, we are to bring him down to KK Hospital immediately...Doctor said that we have to extra careful with babies under 3 months old as their immune system is weak.

Baby C also caught her 2 jie jie's cold virus when she was 2 months and a few months later. But she recovered quite fast (thanks to breastmilk). She didn't eat any cold meds each time she had the cold. I just gave her E.Excel's Millenium Cactus juice and Nutrifresh.

Health Freak Mommy - Didn't give Baby Ryan any cold med except for the nose drip..you mean the E.Excel Millenium Cactus juice can be given to baby too?
