Always, ALWAYS, between 1 and 5 am!
- Fever we can handle with Tylenol or Motrin's help.
- Throwing up - the kids just gotta get it out - not much we can do about that (unless it is excessive, mothers intuition must rule for doctor's involvement - hydration is extremely important).
- Coughing is something that I've found a remedy for :)
I swear, and I was shocked, but it works! No idea how, but I know I tried it on my first, LilMan, the guinea pig (sorry but true). When he was about 8 months old, we put moved from Atlanta to Huntsville, this is when he started getting colds/ear-aches/allergies etc. About a month into it I was desperate. I recognized he needed to build up his immune system, but I was desperate for him to be happy, healthy and have a good nights sleep again. I finally tried Vick's BabyRub on his feet and covered with socks. I was up every three hours checking on him - he was out like a light and lightly snoring, I was the only one who lost sleep that night. :)
My hope is that this helps, but please never forget Mother's intuition, it must always rule!!! God gave us Doctors for a reason (in my opinion).
