Everly has seemed a little off in the evenings for the past two nights. I had mentioned in a previous post that I had to rush home from a dinner outing with the ladies from church. Last night she had a bit of a runny nose, still a happy girl, no fever, and was feeding no problem… goodness she tried her first solid foods even. We knew something was off though, when she crashed for bed around 7:30pm.
This morning she woke up with a very stuffy nose, getting a different colour mucous, and has watery eyes. Still no fever thankfully. It seems our little girl has her first cold. Being a new mommy, I am a little worried of course, and I have no idea how Everly is going to handle having a cold either. Thus far she is in high spirits still, she is more grumpy in the evenings and really just wants cuddles. Bring on the comfort nursing moments too.
A humidifier was recommended to use, and saline drops for her poor nose. We don’t have either of those, but we’ll see how she does if we decide either is needed. We’ve got one of those nose sucky things to help clear her nose too so that she has an easier time breathing.
For now we keep a watchful eye on her, and I really don’t mind all the extra cuddles. Praying her cold disappears quickls, Everly has photos on Saturday morning.
