How do you cope when your baby is poorly
Monday, 7 December 2015 | Admin
Parenting is tough and when people said to me you'll have your hands full it does make me laugh. One or six children I'm sure it's tough in any measure.
Nether the less we have had a tough old few weeks which has resulted in 3 weeks of hospital stays. After my birth stay both little ones have been hospitalised with Broncholitis. Biggest boy was hospitalised overnight but for the entire last week myself and my newborn have stayed in hospital with the same and a chest infection in the right lung.
But we came home and I consider that lucky. We had friends who supplied me with meals, sent gifts and money to help with the added costs to us as a family. All just before Christmas too.
I have taken home a healthy baby who will bounce back once the virus is fully gone (it can take a couple of weeks).
The moral to all this for me though is that I am tough because my children need me to be that way. But also trust yourself. Things went from a cold to seriously ill in a matter of hours and I knew in my heart something wasn't quite right. A mothers instinct is incredibly strong.
When was the last time you were reminded of how lucky you are?

Please be aware that I am now on maternity leave.
We welcomed our third child Jude on the 14th November 2015 and as you can imagine we are a little wrapped up in a baby bubble along with our usual crazy family adventures.
