Aww. TJ has had a couple already. His first one was when I went back to work and he started in daycare. It was horrible and lasted for almost three weeks! I hope you guys feel better soon! I found that putting him in his bouncer in the bathroom while I took a shower really helped.

 Aww, I hate that! I hope you both feel better soon! Stock up on baby VapoRub - that really helped for us!

Poor kiddo, and poor you, too! It stinks not knowing how they're feeling because they can't tell us if they have a sore throat or tummy ache or head ache. Hope you guys get over it quick!

Are you able to nurse often?   If so, offer even more than usual right now, it;s very helpful!

Hope everyone feels better asap!

 you might want to get checked out at the doctors--
You can do immunity building remedies and gargle salt water.
What about having your baby brought to you for nursing breaks or pumping?

 I'm glad he's starting to feel better. Hopefully you two will get passed this soon!
