My baby is sick
I've been through this before obviously, when Fiona was a baby, but this is the first time Finn has been sick, so I'm having a little bit of a freak out. I'm such a worry-wort.
Ok, so yesterday was a super fussy day with pretty much no napping. His eyes were goopier than normal, and he seemed a little congested. This morning he woke up with a fever of 99.9, gagging on phlegm, and his eyes were so goopy that you couldn't even see them, just two big globs of greenish-brown gunk.
I've given him a little Tylenol for the fever, put on the humidifier in his room, and when I'm not holding him I've angled his swing seat so he's sitting up a little higher so he can breathe easier. Am I missing anything? Is there anything else I can/should be doing for him? He doesn't seem particularly miserable, in fact he's been very smiley and happy this morning…
Oh, also. The booger-sucker thing doesn't work worth a crap. I need advice on what to use instead.
