Has your baby got a cold? Are they coughing up loose phlegm all over you? Are they up all night? Do they sound wheezy?
It’s that time of year where colds spread from person to person like cold sores in a night club and babies are by no means immune to it just because they’re babies. (The cold I mean, not cold sores). In fact, since posting on our Facebook page that the boy has a cold, it turns out that everyone has a baby with a cold! Maybe it’s the latest fashion? Good to know I’m on trend.
The boy has come down with, what strikes me as a nasty cold. He’s coughing and spluttering constantly and far from his usual happy, self contented self.
To be honest, it’s really difficult to watch. My little boy is suffering and I’m powerless to help. Seeing your baby with a cold can be really tough… well it is for me anyway. So I’ve been searching for ways to help the little chap out. Here’s what I found. Naturally, we turned straight to Dr Google, our FB group for advice and our local GP to seek out some remedies that might help the poor little chap. If your baby is suffering with a cold too, this is what we’ve tried and it is seeming to help.
Please read all the instructions on the packets of all these things and if you’re in doubt, ask your GP. These are just a few things that we have tried with our baby… we are not ‘recommending’ any of it.
Thanks to everyone on our Facebook who shared their hints and tips too.
