    I am SO happy that I finally got to hold DD2... unfortunately, she's got the cough... no temperature, just a little cough. It's not bad, but it's just there... poor DD.... now, I feel guilty of passing it to her

    I have resumed breastfeeding as I have completely stopped taking any medications since Sunday... I am so hoping that my breastmilk will help her fight off the cough... in the mean time, she's always in my arms as she feels much better being with me... just crossing my fingers that the cough will go away asap

    I'm so glad you're back breastfeeding and cuddling your baby Carmen!
    Never mind about her cough, your breastfeeding is a huge help there, hopefully she'll be better in no time!

    thank you girls... I'm busy keeping her in my arms most of the day... hopefully, the cuddles and my breastmilk will help her feel better soon. It's such a bummer to see the little ones sick especially when they are this young... she probably thinks it's much better staying inside my belly because there she's so much comfier and no cough will get to her!
