Re: Nursing when baby has a cold

My ds was hospitalized with what we thought was RSV (it wasn't) at 7 weeks and I had a hard time too. Do you have a nebulizer? If you do use use water in it and it will help break some of it up. If not saline and a bulb syringe. I also used baby vicks and a humidifier all the time. He would try to eat and would but it would wear him out because he would have to stop and unlatch and breathe a lot...I pumped any remaining out just to make sure my supply wouldn't go down. Hope it passes quickly.
Single, working 2 jobs mama to 3 boys Jace (7), Myles (4), Kip (6months), I ship once MAYBE twice a week.
