Slight fever, runny nose, crabby and generally not feeling well (as determined by extreme fussiness).
I'm all about healing as holistically and naturally as possible, but there are some things that demand a little over the counter medicine to help with symptoms - especially when it's my baby whom I don't want to feel icky!
While we can't make the cold disappear faster, we've tackled this cold with a few essentials to better manage his symptoms. Infant Tylenol, to help reduce Henry's slight fever. The Nose Frida, which is a nifty sucking tool that draws out all Henry's excess snot (motherhood is so, so glamorous.) And Hyland's Baby tiny cold tablets to help with congestion and sneezing. These people also make the all natural, drug free teething tablets we use.

All of this combined is helping Henry get through his first cold! Obviously, they don't make the cold go away faster, but they do help a baby manage the symptoms until the cold clears on its own. And also obviously, I'm not a doctor (more like a holistic granola munching hippie) so consult your child's pedi before busting out any of these remedies, ok? Good!
In completely unrelated news, I ventured over to Fort Worth on Saturday afternoon to meet with Making Mrs. M and Miranda Writes! We hit up a wine bar, and ended up staying for about six hours (!!!) It was so fun to meet other bloggers in person and hang out for a bit. Thanks for the fun time in the midst of a sick kiddo, ladies!
