I feel horrible. My 8 month old LO has a yeast infection, is teething, and has a fever.
For obvious reasons, LO is cranky and isn't sleeping very well. Mommy isn't sleeping well due to this, so she's a little cranky too.
LO was whiny. I couldn't do anything to soothe. Didn't want to eat. Didn't want to rock..etc.
After taking LOs temp (101.2F) I decided I'd give some Tempra to help with fever & tooth pain. LO was on the couch. Me, not thinking and frustrated from an hour of not being able to soothe LO, left LO on the couch so I could grab the Tempra from the closet. It's not very far from the couch anyway.
Just as I open the closet I hear a thump and a scream, LO is on the floor. I run over and scoop baby off the floor and start to cry. I patted him down to make sure he was okay. Checked for bumps and bruises between the tears. I gave LO some Tempra and now he is eating.
I feel terrible. I'm never this careless. The baby already feels like crap and then falls off the couch. Ugh.
