Well, Phil returned from Melbourne on Thursday night complete with a cold and a couple of secondary bacterial infections. And promptly passed them on to us. Thanks dear! I woke up last night with a sore throat and headache. Jamie is sneezing in his sleep and snuffling away, but (touchwood) seems to be quite happy at the moment. I had all these fun activities lined up for us this week - two parents' groups, a visit to a girlfriend's place, a visit into my work. Grrr. I guess that we will be lying low instead.
I hope Jamie's cold doesn't get any worse, coz I have no idea what to do with a three month old with a cold. If anyone has any good tips, I'd love to hear from you. Otherwise, I'll be ringing the Child and Youth Health hotline. I don't even own baby panadol! Can I give him vitamin C?
I caught up with a good friend of mine, Shelley, on the weekend. She was down in Adelaide for a wedding and we had a coffee yesterday. Geez, I miss her. She and I are great friends and used to do everything together when we were in our twenties. We were gym buddies, aerobics junkies, nightclub goers, dinner organisers. Ah, those were the days. I miss them. I miss her. Oh well, she's only a phone call away. Actually, she has been my own personal breastfeeding counsellor, while I've been having difficulties (she's a Breastfeeding Association counsellor).
Shel couldn't believe how much Jamie has grown since she saw him, a couple of weeks after he was born. He's looking like a little boy now. Here's a photo I took last week, out in the back yard.
Love those cute little feet :)
Let me know about your remedies for colds and babies, OK?
