It doesn’t matter how you slice it, sick kiddos are tough. And the younger your child is, the harder it is.
The first time my daughter came down with a cold, I thought I was going to lose it. She was extremely cranky. She only wanted to sleep in my arms. Trying to suck the snot out of her nose was like a wrestling match. And to make matters worse, both my husband and I got sick.
It’s important to remember every kid is unique. What works for us may not work for you. And what works right now might not work two days, two months or two years from now. Kids are infuriatingly unpredictable like that.
But, we've cobbled together some tools and tips that have really helped us. Hope they work for you too!
