Aellyn’s first cold

Poor baby was up all night.  Her nose is stuffed and running like a faucet.  She’s coughing.  I’m so happy she didn’t have even a sniffle for the first 9 months but I would still take this away instantly if I could.

We are treating with Camomilla 30x 2 tablets every 2 hours.  I’m dropping breast milk in her nose and using the bulb syringe.  We’re rocking the humidifier and hoping it passes quickly and without infection.

Just as a PSA – no vicks, no cold medicines.  These are dangerous for babies and even kids.
