sickly mcsickersons

It's still snot city around here, with Mike staying strong as the only healthy one in MooHooVille.  We were all out of the house for work or daycare today, and I don't think I'm alone in counting the minutes until it reaches an acceptable fall-into-bed time. 

I've felt really lucky that Natalie has stayed so healthy since her tubes surgery (knocking furiously on wood), but this cold has definitely done a number on our household.  There's just nothing worse than a sick baby, amiright?

Any tried-and-true common cold remedies that you guys can recommend?  We've been pushing fluids and running a humidifier, but not much beyond that.  We always keep Natalie's mattress propped with a pillow so her head is elevated, but I don't know that it makes much difference in her nighttime sneezing & coughing fits.  Any helpful hints for our sicks would be much appreciated!

  1. Vick's Vapo Rub is a staple in our house! They make a baby version safe for the littles. I just rub a good coat on their chests and throats. The old folks say to rub it on their feet, too. They swear by it, actually. Hope you all feel better soon!!
