Sick

I’ve had a terrible sore throat since last night. No fever or other symptoms as of yet, but got my period. Woke up with the same sore throat and feels like it’s on fire. My concern is for my baby, I can’t afford for her to get sick and have no family / friends to help take care of her. I’m not sure what to do. She has not been sick once in 8 months 😭😭😩😩

The best you can do is good hand hygiene and whatnot to reduce the likelihood. However it’s incredibly hard not to get your little one sick. I’ve been sick for almost two weeks and my little girl has it now too. Just praying it doesn’t hit her how it hit me

Maybe tonsillitis

I would get checked out so you know what you have, unfortunately in our household if one of us gets it, we all do 😭😭😭

If you are sick but baby isn't, wear a mask. And wash your hands a lot. Keep nursing baby. You will make antibodies.

Little one, if they get sick, likely won't have it as bad thanks to antibodies in breast milk

@Elizabeth I’m no longer breast feeding :(

@Katie SHEROW that’s exactly what I want to do but have nobody to watch her, and bringing her to the doctor might not be a great idea 😩

@Elizabeth not everyone can or chooses to breastfeed. Best to ask first if they are x

@Taylor thank you for saying this. When I read that comment, I died inside knowing I’m no longer bf bc I could no longer produce what she needed.

@Taylor I hope you & little one start feeling better soon ❤️

This app can be horrible for our well-being. I wasn’t able to breastfeed. My milk never came in. I was destroying my mental health trying to pump 8 hours a day and only getting 4oz in a 24 hour period. Eventually the milk started to dry up. Only lasted a few weeks. But lots of mums on here are happy to put me down because I formula feed my daughter. It was either this or she starved 🤷🏻‍♀️

Sorry 😔😭😭😭 well,, if you're not nursing and get sick, still keep feeding baby in whatever method you feed baby. Wear a mask so you don't cough on baby. Wash your hands frequently. And rest when you need to because being sick drains anyone, no matter how old

I combi feed my son, formula isn't bad , it's just another option

@Taylor i meant no offense, so I have also apologized.

@Elizabeth nooo lovely I didn’t think you did x was just suggesting. And the other comment was not towards you at all x

If you don't have one, get a humidifier and set it up in your room ☺️. Will help you with breathing better , as the air is drier ( in many places , this time of year is still winter)

@Taylor aww thank you 😊 totally snooped at your profile. Love that you named your little one eowyn ☺️🥰 ( I'm a huge fan of lotr and eowyn was the name of my main character I created on guild wars, an MMORPG game)

@Elizabeth people either love the name or are like … oh that’s different 😬😂

I'm a total 🤓 ( nerd) and a fan of unique names ( though too unique gets a bit difficult as an adult, I'm sure).

We named our son Ayden ( first a name in immediate family.... There are too many L names in extended family, so that letter was not an option 😂😂😂😂)
