Hello fellow moms!
My daughter (March 31st, 2009) has had a cold since last Monday (so - a week and a half). She has a runny nose, crusty eyes, looser poops than normal, and is coughing, and just fussy in general. Also, she isn't sleeping very well. It also seems that she may have a sore throat. She is a little hoarse from all the coughing.
Starting on last Friday, my 2 year old son started getting the same symptoms. Neither of them have had a consistent fever. I have just been giving them Motrin to help them be comfortable for sleeping and I have increased their liquids.
Do any of you know any great remedies for a cold like this? Or does it sound more serious than just a cold? I dread the thought of taking them both to the Dr.'s office. It would be a nightmare - not to mention what other germs they could pick up while we are there... But I will do it if I need to. :)
