Mommy & Me Contagion

Charlie & I have matching head colds. It’s his first bout of contagion, & he’s much less cranky about it than I am. He’s been pretty happy & doesn’t seem to mind that he’s not super good at breathing. I, on the other hand, am pretty sure we’re all doomed and will die in a pool of our own sinus juices. He thinks the snot-sucking bulb syringe is the funniest & most delightful thing that’s ever come near his face. I, on the other hand, have found that snot is the only baby bodily fluid that I gag at the sight of. His pediatrician says that steam and saline nasal spay are the only things either of us are allowed to used for symptom relief. The Internet, on the other hand, says I can have Sudafed while I’m nursing. Thanks, Internet!
