This is my reality right now: Rocking a fussy, sick baby. Trying to get him comfortable for just long enough so he’ll fall back asleep.
When Andrew was born, I thought his time in the NICU was the worst thing I would have to experience — the separation, not knowing if there would be complications and just living day-to-day.
We were blessed — there were no major complications and Andrew grew and thrived. He came home after only three weeks and has done so well since then.
But the last month, we’ve been battling illness in our little man. And I can honestly say this is the most helpless I’ve ever felt.
It’s nothing too serious, but it seems like as soon as he’s over one sickness, another pops up. Right now, we’re battling a double ear infection, after two bouts of strep throat last month.
Let me tell you, it isn’t fun.
It is so hard seeing my normally happy, giggling little angel with tears streaming down his face because he hurts so bad.
How do you nurse your babies when they’re sick?
