Life Lessons: Sick Baby Edition

A baby can cry for hours and hours

You don’t need as much sleep as you think you do

The Family Bed is not a lifestyle choice,
it is a survival tactic

Vapor Bath might not relieve congestion,
but the bubbles can distract a sick baby for up to an hour

The only thing harder than leaving your baby at daycare for the first time is leaving your sick baby at daycare

No matter how much vacation time you save at work, you will never have enough

If you have to choose between disappointing your boss or caring for your baby, you will disappoint your boss

Arguments between Mommy and Daddy while Baby is sick should be attributed to sleep deprivation and feelings of helplessness

Trust Daddy’s advice and let him help make decisions

The ban on over-the-counter decongestants for infants sounds practical, until you have a need to use them

A screaming, crying, coughing baby will stop screaming, crying, and coughing as soon as you arrive at the doctor’s office

Even a sick baby can’t resist playing with the tissue paper on the exam table

When your baby is sick, insurance co-pays are the last thing on your mind

Throwing on a bra before you leave the house will be the last thing on your mind when you take your sick baby to the emergency room

It’s all worth it
