How to handle a sick child

As Valentines day approaches, I’m neither happy or feeling the love. It sucks because this is one of my favorite times of the year

With the flu  and sickness epidemic floating  around, me and baby Titan are sick. Yes we both have the cant sleep- runny nose drip thing going on. As a first time mom I’m experiencing my little one go through this for the first time and it has been a ride to say the least.  We don’t have the flu but more so of the common cold . Here is my list of the  TOP 3 things that helped me while Titan was sick . I will also leave a link below for  a few signs of when its time to take your little one to the doctor.

Top 3 items that helped me while my child was sick

  1.  HAND SANITIZER –  I always keep this on me in my diaper bag or purse but its especially important to always wash your hands before handling your baby when sick and after. You do not  want to keep transferring any germs between your little one or you.
  2. NOSE SUCTION-  I’m not going to even try to convince you that baby’s love when you use this item, but its helped me so much with Titans clogged nose. By using this through out the day my baby felt more relief when he slept & during  his Breastfeeding session. I saw more of a improvement in him.  He was able to focus more on his meal and didn’t have to struggle as much to breathe. ( Side note * he did cry sometimes when I did it, so afterwards I placed a little Vaseline around his nose to help the dryness or irritation .)
  3. Humidifier –  This is a miracle from the gods! No more old school getting in your  bathtub and running the shower so steam can feel your nostrils. All you do is fill this item up with water and let it do the work for you. It helps you breathe better and filters out clean air .

HOW TO FINALLY START YOUR MOM BLOG

Let me start off by saying hi Im Bioncca. A First time mom to a almost 6 month old  little boy named Titan ,who rules my world . As I type this post BEBE REXHA’S  ” If its meant to be “song is playing in the back ground. I am ecstatic and feel so accomplished to have finally started my blog.  There is no hard way to explain the right way of starting a blog, but rather just simply doing it.  I have put this off for over 4 years and am finally putting my fingers to the keyboard and making it happen.  I guess I should start from the beginning.

Ever since I was young I’ve kept journals after journals lying around filled with stories, pictures or simple day planning. You name it I wrote it. Of course over the years my topics have changed a little ( I am positively  sure I’m not still into Tommy from the fourth grade .) But the main course  was always in front of me, WRITING was always my #1. Looking back at all the great content I could have wrote about I’m mad at myself for not pursing this at a earlier time. But hey were here now and 4 years later I still have funny stories to tell . Now that I’m a mom my whole life has changed for the better, but that also depends on what day you ask me . (Just being honest we all have bad days ). Continue reading “HOW TO FINALLY START YOUR MOM BLOG”
