November 17, 2012 at 2:02 AM
We are all sick with this nasty cough. Even my 7 week old is starting to cough and im scared because he hasnt had his shots yet and i dont want it to turn to whooping cough. When should i take him in? I was so hoping my breastfeeding though the winter would help him from getting sick and i was so wrong :(

    A cough doesn't turn into whooping cough. It's either pertussis or not.

    Oil of oregano mixed with olive oil on the bottom of the feet. Up your intake of vitamins c and d3, elderberry syrup and keep nursing away.

    Nursing passes on your antibodies but isn't a foolproof "never get sick" type deal. Baby will get over it quicker with your help. Hope he feels better soon!

    thank you. Newborns getting sick scare the crap out of me
