Mia is still sick. Even more stuffy and miserable than yesterday. We suck the gunk out of her nose, but it seems to be never ending. She's so sick she's not even complaining about us sticking that bulb up her nose anymore. Josh wanted to take her to the doctor today. I told him that's not necessary because she's not running a fever. I asked him to ask the babysitter to keep an eye on her and if she develops a fever then we'll take her in. She's not eating though so I'm a little concerned about her hydration. The sitter she's at today is really good about keeping track of wet diapers so I'll know if she is deydrated.
I don't want to be one of those new parents that takes their baby in for every little sniffle, but I've heard stories from moms today when a seemingly minor cold was actually something serious and that makes me worry a little. A triage nurse sent us a text this morning during the morning show and said that keeping an eye on her for changes is the best thing to do.
So how do I treat a cold in a baby? I found this video on WebMD to help me. http://children.webmd.com/video/treating-babys-cold
