So I just had a baby about a month ago and all was going good until a couple weeks he started off with a runny nose and congestion. My husband, other son, and I all have sinus problems so we put it off as sinuses and did the saline drops, that seemed to help, then a few days later he started puking. Not just spit up serious puking projectile vomit everywhere and a lot of it. Well that slowed down and then started up again. So I took him into the DR. turns out he has been puking because of the sinus drainage which was what I thought anyways. But the poor guy has a Sinus Infection and an Ear Infection. The Dr said that it is rare for a baby as young as mine to have one or the other much less both. So he is on antibiotics. And has been since Monday evening and is still puking just not as bad, I am gonna call the DR and try to get him in again. I feel so bad for him. My first little one hardly ever got sick, so dealing with this is a whole new experience which I must say I am handling well ! So my question for you is how do you handle sick children ? What has been the worst illness that your child has had ? Or well anything related to children being sick and how you have dealt. I would love to read some good stories on the subject.

My daughter had a cold for the first 3 or 4 months of her life. Every time I asked the doctor about it he said that she was fine. She had acid reflux and he said that was what was causing most of it not an actual cold. She was not too bad about the stuffy nose. I feel so bad for babies that are that little and don't feel good. I just make sure that they are as comfortable as possible.
