Oy, helbury! I hope everyone recovers quickly. Malka had RSV at 2 months and it was some scary stuff, although she also avoided the worst of it.

Ha! So true about the information! I don't even blame her - she lives with her extended family, and they had all had the stomach flu followed by this cold, and she just wanted to get out of the house, which I understand (but am still peeved by bc sick kiddos are the pits). And it is so hard to know what the right thing to do is. I keep canceling things bc I don't want to expose people to L if she might be sick, so then we miss out on stuff, which isn't great either.

Winter can't be over soon enough. I feel like everyone I know still has headcolds, ear-infections, stomach bugs etc. Come on sunshine!

Ugh, that sucks. I'm so sorry Sashi.

Well, when I came home Ada was happy so I guess things went well for a first watch. I mean, it helped that Andy was still in the apartment but Ada never tried to get him. She just went to the bedroom door a couple of times and said "daddy work" and then went back to playing with my mom. My mom seemed happy that she got alone time with Ada and was on the phone (again) after I got home bragging to a friend about how she watched her. And then she told me how her friend bought an extra carseat for her grand kid so she can take her places and I was like hell no. Jeesh, this is the first time you watched her!

Ugh...sick newbies are scary stuff. Hope you are all well soon Helbury.

Sashi, are you having any luck deciding where to have Ada when #2 arrives?

Tofulish, I feel you. I am scared to go certain places because I know F's going to get sneezed on, etc. and sometimes we have to stay well (like now, we're trying to make it another 6 days until we get the vaccination that she missed a couple of weeks ago, sick) The coughing is the part that gets me. Snot you maybe can try and control (maybe), but coughing...no way is a 1 year old going to cover their mouth, etc.

Yeah, I didn't want to jinx it earlier, but L now definitely has a runny nose now, which stinks. The Monday playdate was the only one we went to this month because she was sick. And then the minute she is better she gets a new cold.

refinnej, it's going to have to be my mom who comes over when I go into labor. We don't really have someone else who is close enough by to just come over last minute. I think I need to start leaving Ada with her once a week so she (and I) get used to it.

I've got my fingers crossed for Leela not really having a cold. I posted a few days ago that babynut was snotty the other day and I was sure that she was going to be sick or at least have a cold but the next day she woke up with no snot or any other symptoms. It was weird.

My complaint. Is it really so bad to have someone gently remove a huge booger with a warm wash cloth? Judging from her reaction it seems to be the worst thing that has ever happened in the world.

That is exactly why I quit going to the local playgroup (not just because of the enormous slices of cake) -- the lady who ran it brought her sick runny nosed kid, didn't wipe his nose the entire time (she was probably too busy eating cake! har!), and got all pissy with me when I told Beet not to drink out of her sick kid's juice bottle that he was sharing with everybody. ...And Beety and I got sick a few days later.

So sorry Leela has a runny nose! They are both sad (sick kid) and a PIA (lots of nose wiping).

The sick kid thing is so hard for me. Giles has only ever had one "cold" (which I think may have actually been the flu) and we were all so miserable for so long that I never want him going anywhere! I know he should probably really start to socialize soon though - I did leave him at a friend's house for a few hours. She has 3 young boy and said that Giles looked at them like they were from another planet at first.
I also really would like to start going back to church - we haven't attended since he was born - but I KNOW that he will catch something in the nursery so I just can't bring myself to do it.
What age do kids really NEED to be socializing with other kids?

Ugh, I hear you, Tofulish. It's a very sore spot for me at this point because Lydia got sick right around when the twins were born due to a nanny bringing a sick kid to playgroup. And then the twins both got sick from her. Took them to the ped, and it's RSV. So now I have two RSV-infected 3 week olds because someone decided it was OK to bring a sick toddler to playgroup. At least neither of the twins has developed the more serious symptoms of RSV. Fingers crossed it stays that way....


We are thinking of you and sending tons of good thoughts. For all it sucks when your older kid has a cold, its nowhere near the terror you get when your newborns are sick. I hope everyone heals up quickly.

Leela couldn't sleep last night because of her congestion, so we basically nursed all night with the humidifier running and her head elevated. I am sad because we had a weekend full of fun plans and I'm not going to feel comfortable taking her any longer.

And I so hear you on the boogers, Bnut!

Forget getting sick at play dates just think how many times we all could have gotten sick just going to a store. Every time I go to Target, IKEA, grocery stores...during the day it seems like it is filled with parents and their school aged children who are obviously home sick from school. I was just at IKEA and this sick girl was basically rolling all over the beds on display!

put them in a plastic ziplock in the freezer and save em for banana bread or smoothies. you won't smell them and you'll get banana bread at some point.

Well, her nose goo has turned from clear to green and thickysticky.... So hopefully she will be back to feeling fine soon.

Quote:
When a cold virus first infects the nose, the nose makes clear mucus; however, as the body is fights the virus, the mucus becomes yellow or white. Once the bacteria that normally live in the nose grow back, the mucus becomes green.


I know you're right JENNA and that you could pretty much get sick anyplace! I totally understand needing to get them out of the house too, just for your own sanity.

And Audrey, they are Ninjas! Last year I got the stupid Nose Frieda and couldn't use it once. No matter how asleep or how sick she was, the nose suctioning was just not in the cards.

Today is one of those days where her poop is so sticky it sticks to everything. Between her cheeks, on her feet, to my pants, the carpet. Most days its very discrete and easy to just pick up and dispose of, but today, its tackypooparama.

And no, she will not wear a diaper in the house. She is fine if we go out, but not if we're home. We've been trying to get her to keep it on for even a few minutes, but she hates it. There is a lot of screaming. She's a nudist at heart.

During dinner with my SIL and her family, their recently (about 6 months ago) adopted 2 year old son was crying a little and my SIL said "**** ruins everything. He seriously ruins everything we try to do." In front of everyone, including their 3 year old (biological) daughter. I can't even. It broke my heart.

Bap, that is so sad and awful :(

Tofulish, seriously, I'd just make her wear the diaper. I don't let my kids cry it out and I totally understand the desire to keep them happy and not crying, but you have to draw the line somewhere. For me, it would definetly be with cleaning up poop all over the place. Some things are just not negotiable. Usually with these stubborn habits, you have a few days of tantrums and then poof, they decide to cooperate and suddenly your life is so much easier :-)

I think this is excellent advice. It's creating so much work for you to be cleaning that all up. And I know you are concerned about keeping her healthy - you wouldn't want to risk her, your partner, or yourself getting sick from getting her fecal matter finding it's way into things.

I'm with Kelly and bodhi on the having her wear a diaper. Especially with what bodhi said about you and your husband getting sick from her fecal matter finding it's way into things. Not even just you guys but what if you had people with kids over for a play date? You are risking everyone that walks into your house.
