First Cold

My poor baby is sick with her first cold. She has been slightly sick before from her shots and teething, but this is a full on cold. She has a fever, running nose, and is coughing. Her fever is finally under control today and she is recovering.Can you see her 2 teeth on the bottom? I took these pics early last week when she was healthy and happy. It is awful seeing her suffer. She is totally not herself. Last night during her bath time, which she normally loves, she was screaming and crying the whole time. It broke my heart seeing her like that because I know how much she loves the water.The whole family hasn't gotten much sleep. Especially her, because she keeps waking up once or twice at night and crying. I am such a worrier and keep checking on her during the night. I can hear her ragged breathing from her congestion. Poor baby! I miss seeing her smiling face.

Poor little thing...I hope she feels better soon, that is a bummer for the whole family when baby is sick!

My daughter used to get a terrible cold everytime a tooth came through, and sometimes it ventured into an ear infection too which was not nice. I used to have the panadol on regular usage to stop the pain. I do hope your gorgeous daughter feels much better soon. Her smile is so cute with her 2 new teeth.

Poor little thing! It is hard on everybody when a little one is sick. I'm happy to read that she is recovering. Take care, every one in the family ... cold can spread.

O my poor baby !

Dont worry, is part of teething stage, it will soon be over and gone with. Pls take care of yourself as Melody needs you more during these time.

Take time off,make yourself a cuppa Kopi, knit your heart out when she is napping (thats what i did). Relax in the world of crafts.

Hopefully Melody will feel better soon! Sick babies are the saddest thing ever. And thankfully it's only a cold--even if it's a bad one. I have a daughter a little older and it was *awful* when the first time she got sick it was a stomach bug.

i hope M feels better soon. Wonder if bath time is uncomfy b/c she's cold when she's wet? Poor thing. Get better soon M!

Hope little Melody feels better soon! I know what you mean. We just had an episode of 104 fever and spend 8 hours at the ER on Monday. Her fever finally broke last night, but it's so hard to watch them do tests on her. I've never seen Evie cry so much.

Awww! Poor little Melody. Hope she is feeling better soon. Those teeth are so cute! And that smile! Oh, my! Cuteness like that shouldn't get sick! Sending warm, healing hugs your way. Take care of yourself, Oiyi! Rest, relax, craft! You need to be at your best to get through this. But get through it, you will!

those two teeth are killing me! She is so precious!

I hope she feels better soon, for her sake and for yours :)

Sending prayers Melody's way! She is such a good little trooper. Even though she's not feeling that great right now, she still has her adorable smile! God bless you and heal you, precious baby!

Teresa Foo said...

Aww poor Melody! Don't worry too much Oiyi! Babies are very strong and she will get well very soon and be all smiling and happy again! Btw, she's sooooo adorable!!! ^_^

I hope she feels better soon. I remember LS's first cold, it was a very painful couple of days...and then he was normal again. Now he just wipes his nose with his sleeve saying that he "not feel good." Hopefully, Melody will not be a nose on the sleeve wiper. It might be a boy thing...
