my dear son coming down with the flu =( lucky tom he's due for his jab can one time see doc.
any tips on taking care of him??
i prop him up on two pillows now when he sleeps so his airflow slightly better, & just try my best to keep him comfortable.
poor baby got flu still can smile & laugh for his mommy when she came home from work
your baby only 3 months old, dont know can use essential oil or not.
So concident!! My dear daughter also due for jab ytd and she was down with flu too. but still got the jab doc says ok. Its her 3 jab already ( 6mths).
She seems to hav mucus which makes her uncomfortable i guess.
Cant sleep well at night, both of us affected . She can sleep thru nights at least 5 hours already, but for the past week she has been waking up n cried very hard. dont know what happen then gave her pacifier she will be quiet, but very tiring . when she is asleep her pacifer will drop off her mouth, so if she cried for pacifier i die ...need to stick on to her mouth like that.hahah
So thought of train her not to use pacifer, especially during day nap, but difficult sometimes can sometimes she cry none stop. How huh??
sorry i blur blur but ... what is essential oil?
i'm not too sure myself ... how do you normally put her to sleep? if it is by any other method may i suggest you start patting & shushing her? i use this on my boy & at this stage he can actually fall asleep by himself . sometimes need pacifier for comfort but once sleep will drop off & even if drop off he will stay asleep, then wakey fresh fresh & laugh laugh.
btw, i told his pediatrician he's got the sniffles but doc didn't even prescribe anything! dont know whether he paid attention or not cos clinic was so busy just now ... aiyah i hate feeling helpless

Ya i pat pat her to sleep everytime, but she needs her pacifer if not she will cry. Unless she is extremely tired then i can just pat her w/o pacifer she will fall asleep. For her also like for comfort ley, she will drop off and stay asleep, just that for last week she will wake up like 2 hours later and cry, so i give her again cos she cry until like kenna bash very seriously. then she will fall back to sleep, but another few hours she will repeat. so sometimes 3-4 times a night very tiring for me and my dear husband needs to work. hope is the flu that actually cos that. she will revert back.
i think too young not recommended to use essential oil , cos even during preggy some oil are strictly not recommended
ya... that 1 really have to check w pediatrician.
Mine since 1mth until now.. still got the snorting sound .. Like ALOT of mucus inside.. See his nostrils, quite clear coz I got clean up everyday after bath. Sleeping so far ok. that time, pediatrician said normal, gave saline only. ZzZzz
But since Fri, feeding cannot finish 120-150ml.. Most of the feedings only drink like 60-90ml. Sick of milk oredi meh?? Haha. Hopefully today his feeding goes back to normal... sigh.
Today supposed to go for the 3mth jab.. I lazy to bring 2 kids down, somemore dear daughter needs to go sch.. Think Sat then bring him for the jab with dear husband.. Haha.
if baby sounds stuffy like got mucus, then chances are .. got mucus! & you won't see it becos it's all the way up the nasal passages. just yesterday my husband sucked my baby's nose - quite a lot of mucus lei! did it a few times, baby could breathe better.
be careful about baby's loss of appetite. it might signal something - just monitor, okay?
my baby just had his 3rd month jab last saturday - oh my gosh! he ran a fever over the weekend!! & stupid me i thought it was going to be like his first jab heaty body then after that okay ... but no it continued throughout Sunday morning & afternoon. but lucky by Sunday evening fever broke . still scary tho.
last weekend i had so many traumatising panicky moments with baby!! makes me feel like such a stupid mother =(((
Eh, loss of appetite means something? what thing?? Sick of milk? Sick?? dont scare me!!
Yea, usually after jabs 1-2days will have fever, got fever medi rite? dont worry too much .. Hee. *pats* no stupid, everyone's learning new things everyday!
read somewhere that newborns' breathing tend to sound stuck 'cause their airway is not fully developed yet. not 'cause they got nose sh*t inside or down w flu. unless the newborns r bothered about it, then mayb is due to flu or something.
if not, can just leave it. as they grow older, they'll have clear airway. wont have those sound already.
3 months old oredi.. still newborn meh.. Haha.
hmm... 3 months only . to me, still considered newborn. hahaha...
When dear son 3weeks old, I carry him w/o clothes from room to bathroom @ 7.30am to bath until now.
But , seriously, his nose shld be fine rite? sigh. I rescheduled his jab to next Sat, so next Sat then @@ pediatrician. In fact, last Sun, I brought him to GP, GP said nothing wrong with him. ZzZz.. But ya, irriated to hear the sound since 1 month old. So worried
autumn82 > i also quite bo chap n rough when i handle my boy. sometimes will leave fan on while changing his diapers. my sis alw make noise about it.
haha! i kp chip in my share...
it is very jialat to have baby down with flu and stuffy nose...i always suck his mucus out (using a pump) but i find manual sucking more effective, but very erks ...
i bought the saline drops too, for just in cases, but in the end did not use it at all until it expired (dont know y?)
if not tahan a few days after medicine clears the nose , which means days wo good nights sleep....and then dozing off during 2-3 pm at work (most unbearable time of the day) - which i always do...hahahaZ!!!
my baby like dont care like that his nose stuffy. occasionally he will grunt grunt & rub his nose but if i prop him up properly at night he still sleeps pretty well.
but past few days he's been very notti in his sleep! after night feed (4am) he'll be back in cot neat & nice on his pillow. then when i wake up @ 6am i see he sliiiiiiiiiiiiiiide all the way down ... there was one night he managed to sliiiiide until head was at the bottom his legs @ the top - completely opposite!!!!
si beh cute . want to scold also donno how. haha!
yesterday he had a sneezing fit. after it stopped my dear husband faster2 stick the tube up his nose & suck ... wah he say alot!! tube filled up!! he felt sooo satisfied that he kept sucking more ... lol ... suck until my dear son cannot tahan start crying. HAHA!
so cute all these babies.

Haha.... my son also! never in the same place I put him down to sleep in. He even has the oddest talent in hiding things. My hubby put him to sleep with his pacifier in his mouth, morning I found it under his butt! I covered his tummy and legs with the blanket when he slept, when he woke up, he was lying on top of the blanket. Really dont't know how he does it.
My son's nose is usually stuff at night and early in the morning. I suspect he might have sinusitis. My husband has it and I'm sort of a carrier; half my cousins have it.
He screams every time I try to clear his nose though. Guess it must be unpleasant...
