Re: August 2011 - SEPTEMBER CHAT!

Oh no! What does that mean for Harper? Brynn was the first to get it... then Kate, Grace, Claire and dh. They were 9 months, 5, 6, and 3 at the time. It is super contagious... they got it so close together that I think they were exposed before we had a chance to prevent it. Our pediatrician didn't even want them coming to the office because it could expose other kids. We got it at Kohls or ToysRUs. :/

Ours wasn't too concerned either. Guess that's why she didn't need to see us. Not like there was much she could do either. I guess it's just one of those childhood illnesses... most of what I read talked about little kids in daycare, and how fast it spreads there. Dh, Claire and Grace's blisters got super itchy, but not Kate or Brynn's. Benadryl didn't even touch it.

So what did you do for them?

She says "mommy hurt" and holds her hand up.

Gave her Motrin and she has been sleeping since 3

Just Motrin. Their mouths hurt... even throats. Lots of fluids, popsicles and soft foods. Brynn started grinding her teeth because it hurt so bad. Oatmeal baths for itching.

Harper was the only one to get it here we thought and then I realized I'd had it too! My tongue had several spots that I thought were tastebuds but my whole mouth had throbbed, gums and all. It was awful ;( She had a few mouth sores but nothing on her body anywhere else. I was shocked it didn't spread.

I would just do whatever keeps her comfortable. Drinks all day in any form, liquid is liquid. Harpers most recent tummy bout was spent on the couch or in my bed with Daniel Tiger on during all wake periods. It was all I could do to distract her and keep her content.

So I wanted Peyton to be as comfortable as possible so I got sposies until the rash clears and wipes (mustella) and diapers for Harper just in case. Diaper rash ointment breast pads and paper towels all at target. I got $10 cash back for Starbucks shhhh!

So dh sees the recipe and says over $50 for diapers and breast pads? And I say "see that's why I cloth diaper!" Lol don't tell him about my mocha!

I also never carry medicine in the house so that was a small fortune esp since I bought the 2yr old and up then realized not the same weight category for Peyton and went back and got infant. I kept the other for the boys.
