42 Weeks---MDO=Sick Baby
The problem is that he has had, at the very least, a runny nose since the first day I picked him up. I dropped off a healthy baby and picked up a crusty-nosed, sniffling one. I understand that they have to "build up immunities" and "it's going to happen sooner or later", but COME ON. In the past 2 weeks we've been to our pediatrician 3 times and made a trip to Urgent Care this morning. He has been diagnosed with ear infections, laryngitis and most recently he woke up with a bizarre, whelpy rash all over his face (that mysteriously disappeared as quickly as it appeared). I feel like I'm constantly giving him medicine and he can see me coming with a "boogie wipe" miles away. He hates me wiping his nose almost as much as I hate him having that crusty junk.
So my question is how long does it take to build up these so-called immunities? They can't give him a flu shot until he's healthy and I can't help but assume that some moms may be taking their kids in to school when they probably shouldn't be.
Well, I guess I shouldn't complain too much because so far it hasn't been too serious. Other moms have let me know that the real fun starts when there's a stomach flu going around that the whole family catches. Looking forward to that one...
