I have the flu, and so does my 16 month old. I am dragging around the apartment, trying to take care of everything, and I feel like I'm going to puke.
How do I take care of my sick tot when I'm sick too? And ideas or advice? I have no one to help-not one person.

Haven't you heard? Mothers aren't suppose to get sick. They are suppose to be there for everyone else. geeezzz I understand completely!
You just do the best way you can. That's why I always have can good and other bland foods around. Cream of wheat; cracker; broth soups; jello; applesauce; juices. So when I'm sick I can get up and nurse myself to health.
Hang in there!

I agree with most of the answers here. turn on some cartoons to keep your little one happy, give him/her some Tylenol for fever and take some yourself. have something close to puke in, plenty of clear liquids near by,, open some cans of soups for meals and lay in the bed or on the couch together and rest. Everything else can wait until you are on your feet again.
