So I’m 26 Weeks +4 days into my second pregnancy and up until now, I had prided myself on having never been ill during my first…I guess I jinxed it!
This morning, I woke up with a sore through, stuffy nose and achy body! There goes my record!!🤧
Anywho…I’m actually pretty good at dealing with being poorly. Generally, I don’t let it stop me with getting in with life, unless I have a flu or sickness bug. But colds rarely knock me out.
I seem to have passed on this trait to our Lil Dumpling, as he also has a lil baby cold and is all snotty and coughs at the moment. Yet, he still manages to run through th house like a tornado 🌪 as though nothing is wrong.
The worst of it, as most of us know, however comes at night, when your nose gets blocked and you can’t get to sleep!
A friend of mine recommended putting Snuffle Babe rub on Dumpling’s feet before dressing him for bed as it has worked wonders for her little one when he has had a cold before. I usually use Olbas Oil but I thought I’d give this snuffle babe a try instead!
So far, so good! First time trying it this eve and Lil Dumpling was fast asleep within 6 minutes of head hitting the pillow! We’ll see how he fairs over the next few nights, but in the meantime, I rubber some onto my chest and will also put some on my feet before bed tonight…after all, it says don’t use on children less than 3 Months old but it doesn’t say don’t use on adults! 🤷🏾♀️
I’m also drinking plenty of liquids and honey with lemon (wish I could add a shot of brandy in it 😩🤦🏽♀️) as well as rising up on Emergen-C!
I found all of these great products in Boots but the are also available on Amazon and in Superdrug
Anywho…early night for me this eve, I need all the energy I can get to carry on growing Lil Pudding!! 🤰🏾
