Summer Colds

Miss K has a summer cold, she's quite miserable.  She woke up around 3 or so this morning coughing up stuff, runny nose, watery eyes and very congested. She didn't sleep much after that or even really eat.  She usually downs a 6 to 7 oz bottle in about 30 mins or less, but it took her an hour to eat about 3 oz. So off to the doctor we went this morning.  Thankfully it is just a cold and no infections or anything, but it's bad because there's nothing you can do for a baby with a cold. Just some nose drops to help break up the congestion and try to get them to rest. 

They weighed her today and she weighed in at 11 lbs 15 ozs, almost a 12 pounder! She was relatively good at the doctor until she got hungry and overtired. She slept on the way home and then ate a 5oz bottle when she woke up.  So that's a good sign and she's been asleep for a little over an hour now.  I hope she sleeps tonight, but I am thinking as soon as she lays down she is going to start coughing again.  As soon as I lay her down to change her, she does, so I imagine tonight will be the same way. She may end up in her swing or carseat lol. 

We go back on Friday for her "2 month" check up that is now a little over a month late.
