Sure, it looks innocent enough. But one suck from this baby turns my baby into a banshee.
Yes, Bubbers has his very first real stuffy nose. Up until yesterday, he’s been the picture of manly health and vitality–just like his father.
Unfortunately, the cause of this stuffy nose is not so clear…
Scenario #1: Bob’s Corn Maze
I thought it would be fun to go with Charming and the Boy Scouts to “Bob’s Corn Maze”.
This is us at the entrance to said maze:
Scenario #2: The Tooth
(Well, not a complete tooth, but the just-starting-to-poke-out protuberance of a tooth! My baby’s growing up!)
Scenario #3: Allergies
The same day Bubbers got congested, so did Charming. This is interesting, because Charming never gets sick. In our house, if someone gets sick, it’s me.
However, while Charming never gets sick, he does have allergies. Particularly when the seasons change, and fall has definitely hit the Northwest.
So, Charming thinks his allergies flared up, and since Bubbers exhibited the same symptoms as himself at the same exact time, Charming suspects allergies are the likely culprit.
(Can babies even have seasonal allergies??)
So, let’s take a vote. What do you think?
p.s. Hey, experienced moms out there, I want to make sure I’m doing this right.Is this how it goes?
Step 1: Squirt saline up each nostril
Step 2: Baby cries like crazed banshee under water
Step 3: Suck it all out
Step 4: Repeat every few hours
