Oliver had been a bit sniffly the past few days which I was hoping was just a sniffle that would pass but unfortunately it has graduated in to a full blown cold! We haven’t needed any medicine yet but he has been smothered in snuffle babe – the baby version of vaporub – and I’m really hoping it works! He’s just been coughing a lot but is still asleep, I’m not expecting miracles but I’m hoping for his sake that he sleeps well.
It’s quite reassuring sometimes that I’m still breastfeeding as I know that my body will be making antibodies for him as well as being gentle on his tummy and throat. I’m sure if I wasn’t still feeding him I’d barely give it a second thought, but the reassurance is quite nice to have. Even if it is only once or twice a day.
He has a cold…
