Baby sick for first-time

Baby sick

When Baby A got sick for the very first time I was so worried. I knew he would be okay but I didn’t know what to do to make him feel better. He was only a month old so there really wasn’t much I could do to improve the situation. I just had to let Mother Nature run its course.

Fortunately, he just was congested so it did not take long for him to get better. It did take a lot of nose suctioning and baby Vicks on his feet with socks on. I remember feeling so bad that he was sick. I called and made an appointment with his pediatrician. I called my mom and aunt to see if they had any advice as to what to do. I hadn’t known it was just congestion at the time. I just knew he was miserable and sounded horrible. Looking back now it was funny all the running around my husband and I did try to figure out what was wrong and make him feel better. You could definitely tell we were first-time parents.Baby sick

You are not alone

It was really hard though not knowing what to do or expect. You can read every doctor’s book ever made and scour the internet trying to figure out all possible things that could happen. Until you experience it first-hand though you really don’t know how you’re going to react. I thought I would be calm like oh this is normal. I never expected to feel so stressed and terrified that something major was wrong with my baby. I didn’t expect to run to the store looking at every possible baby item to see if anything would work for him.

Being a parent is stressful and scary. It doesn’t come with an exact handbook. You never know when your little one will get sick or how bad. I could wash my hands five million times a day and that still wouldn’t have prevented him from getting sick. Sometimes our little ones getting sick is for the best. I know, how is our little one getting sick actually good for them? It is because it helps them build up their immune system. I know I hate seeing my son sick as any parent would. Just know you are not alone in parenthood. It happens to the best of us and we all react differently.

Do you remember the first time your little one got sick? How did you react? What were they sick with?

Tummy time nightmare to a dream

Tummy Time

Tummy Time

Tummy Time

My son hated tummy time for the longest. He absolutely 100% hated it. He would scream bloody murder when you put him on his stomach and instantly stop when you picked him up. We knew tummy time was crucial to his development. After all, how else would he gain the strength he needed to crawl. We kept trying and trying but no matter what he would freak out. Even his pediatrician was amused about his reaction. We needed a fix and we needed it right then.  Continue Reading →

Tips and Tricks on how to deal with bath time dramtics

Bath Time Dramatics

Bath Time Dramatics-First Bath

When my son got his first bath let me tell you the drama was real. He was screaming and kicking. I felt bad for my husband having to hold our little 7lb 5oz wiggly infant being first-time parents yikes. I was just watching snapping pictures trying to document every moment. As I knew he wouldn’t be that tiny for long. This being our first child I was not expecting screaming. I always saw other kids babbling, smiling, or at least just lying there. The funny thing about it was it was just a sponge bath.  Continue Reading →

How to make teething popsicles for your little one

Teething Popsicles

Teething Popsicles

Babies seem to start teething at such an early age. Every child starts teething at a different age but eventually they all do. Baby A started teething at two months old. Being a first-time mom I was not expecting that. We did not know what to do to help soothe him. I just wanted to make him feel better. We would rub his gums, tried teething gels, a wet rag put in the freezer for him to gum, and teething rings.  Continue Reading →

Arts and Crafts: Finger painting fun

Arts and crafts

I love doing arts and crafts with my husband and son. We just have such a wonderful time. This week we decided to do some finger painting. It is something I knew my son would love doing and my husband would love helping him. I had done finger painting with him since he could sit up on his own. It is just something I try to encourage as it is a way he can express himself as he gets older. Plus, it is very fun to do and makes great gifts for family.  Continue Reading →
