On night #7 we had to jump off the sleep train (get it? sleep training? hardy harr harrrrr).
I had a 101 fever, Blaine had a 101 fever, we both had coughs and I truly believe cuddles were in order for all. Plus I think nursing is like giving babies medicine so the more often he did it, the quicker he'd get better (in my mind).
Who knows how long this sickness will last but I will not be making that kid cry until I know he is healthy again.
Speaking of sickness, Leslie made the comment on my breastfeeding post about how nursing for 15 months has resulting in her "body giving up" on her. I think my body has been giving up on me in a way. This was the first year since age 3 that I wasn't regularly attending some sort of germ bag errrrrrrr school (preschool, elementary school, high school, college, teaching at a high school, etc). I certainly thought I'd be the picture of health. WRONG!!! I've been sick so much this year I lost count and have been to the doctor three times. (I average one doctor visit a year and only took 1 sick day in 6 years of teaching).
So in summary: between nursing, running, getting no more than 2 consecutive hours of sleep per night, and caring for this little one, my body is VERY run down and giving up on me lately! I've had a fever for 3 days now and that is just crazy!!
Has anyone else noticed a downturn in health when they had babies?
