Somehow I caught a cold. I am breastfeeding the Wondertwins. So, I have to rely on fluids, vitamins, and rest. I am trying to get a ton of all three. I am so stuffy and have a runny nose (how these can go together is beyond me!). My eyes are itchy and I can't stop sneezing.

Being sick with babies sucks. You just want to curl up with a box of tissues and sleep. I'm sure a ton of cold meds would help too. Instead I change diapers between nose blowing and drink orange juice as I nurse. I am hoping to nap when they nap.

Lord help me survive!

I hope you get to nap. Being sick and a (nursing) mom stinks. All you want to do is curl up in a ball and have people take care of you but instead, you're taking care of others. Last time I was sick I literally felt like the kiddos were sucking the life out of me every time I nursed.

yuck. I have been there, nursing at feeling miserable. I agree with eva - get a nap if you can!!

I hear you. Being sick with babies is the worst...well, even worse is you, hubby, and babies all being sick at the same time...pure hell! I hope you feel better soon. Happy napping!

I hope you can get as much rest needed so you can be 100% soon!
