I have noticed yesterday after breastfeeding Elias that my nipple felt a bit sore. But I thought ah it’s fine since Elias has learned to bite or chew on them the past month. Not that I encourage him to do it and I pull away if he bit too hard. And then he was drinking from another breast too and I thought hmm now both nipples are getting sore. Don’t know why only today I thought of feeling his gum and to my surprise (or rather expectation) I felt a tooth appearing and it must have been there since the past couple of days!
I’m going to take a photo of that tooth tomorrow.
For one week Elias was having running nose and sometimes thick gooey yellow brownish in color. It was really a pain coz he kept waking up in the night as his nose was blocked and sometimes he choked when he started coughing.
I tried to make sure that he has enough warm clothes on him. I usually wash his face every morning when he wakes up and in the evening before I put him to bed. Also wash his hands. Which I forgot to do regularly for the past couple of weeks but I continued when he fell sick during Christmas. Also because he had more physical contacts through this time.
Then I started applying white wood oil on his chest and back every time I change his clothes. And under his feet. I noticed his nose started to get clearer so I continued.
All bibs are changed as soon as they’re detected drenched with drools, so that they don’t have the chance to penetrate through Elias’ shirt thus making his chest cold.
And of course extra love and care during the time when he is most sensitive because baby surely needs those!
Wow I don’t believe it! We left baby Elias to his grandmother for three hours last week. It was quite unexpected coz we made the decision quite rushy as we were late for a formal meeting. I didn’t want to leave Elias coz I’ve never done it before and grandparents weren’t prepared themselves! But so glad that we managed to come back in time when he wakes up and before he gets too hungry. Now I know why some people bring breastpumps when they travel. Guess I should start with that too now if I want to be more flexible being without Elias (not that I want to, but I might have to) Don’t like the thought of it 😦
