Aw Bubba!

My baby is sick :(...

He fed all night, and this morning I was a tad frustrated. I had turned him over onto his tummy at about 7am, and he settled a bit then, but by 7.20am he was restless again, and so Dave came in to take him. He started crying just before Dave came in, and part of me thought I should try feeding him again, and part of me just didn't want to because I'd barely slept all night and I just wanted Dave to take him so I could sleep. I drifted off. Bryn must have settled with Dave.

About 8.15am Dave comes back in and says he thinks Bryn might be a bit under the weather because he cried for a little bit after coming out, then settled, then about 20 minutes later he vomited, as in projectile, and then he seemed happy again...

So, I got up, came out. Dave handed Bryn over and I was cradling him, and he started that gulping dry wretching thing, he didn't actually throw up though. I fed him and then laid him flat and he was ok, but definitely felt hot. I brought him into the study and he just lay on my chest (something he NEVER does)...

Dave left for work and I sat with Bryn until he dozed of, then he slept for about 1.5 hours...

He must know I don't deal well with vomit (reflux vomit is one thing, full-on projectile vomiting is something quite different!), because so far he hasn't thrown up again...

My poor bubba! In the past nearly 7 years, my kids have been sick a few times (they're surprisingly healthy, mind you), you'd think I'd be used to it by now, but nothing leaves you feeling as powerless as a sick baby...

Poor Bryn! We hope he is feeling better soon.

I agree there is nothing as heart breaking as a sick bubba. They way they cuddle in, snuggle down and doze just makes you want to protect them forever
