sick baby. :(

Stuck in a blizzard with a sick baby! I don't usually give Tylenol, but he was so uncomfortable. All he wants to do is nurse. He is 15 mo and only nurses 3 times a day, today was about 12 haha. We finally got him back to sleep but if/when he does wake up again I wanna be prepared. Any suggestions? He has a stuffy nose and I think his throat hurts, but no cough. I put baby Vicks on him and put the humidifier on. We are in mass so we can't go out because of the blizzard. Everyone has been ordered of the roads. I hope it's not strep. This is horrible timing! I feel so bad for him!

The only thing that I would add to what you're doing is to put some of your milk in his nose. Keep nursing. It will help him.

 Put a few drops of Breastmilk in his nose, its a good decongestant. & just keep that humidifier going...

I hand expressed into a medicine cup and used a dropper or syringe.

                    This,,, When my DS was first born he got a stuffy nose for some reason, I would squeeze out a few drops into my palm soak a qtip with the milk and rub it in his nose. But if you use a medicine dropper it works good too.
