oh dear, baby got flu!

Oh dear! I think baby caught my bacteria and now he got flu. Probably sore throat too since he sometimes didn't want to drink milk or take baby cereal. I tried to sleep in a different room during my nasty dry cough bout for the whole long month. Well the dry cough get very loud when it was irritated it would wake baby. At the same time reduce the amount of bacteria or virus flying around.

Still it wasn't enough to prevent infection as young baby still have low immunity. I guess the nightly play time with baby could still have germs flying around. The final round that caused the infection was when my wife forgot to adjust the air-conditioner in the master bedroom from 23 °C to a warmer 25 °C and it got very cold in the morning.

Well the weather was very blistering hot lately in the end month of March. So the varying hot and cold temperature would cause many people to become sick.

Anyway, my wife brought baby to see the paediatrician and some medicine was prescribed. That helped to ease and reduce the runny nose and reduce the coughing. Well, despite the runny nose, baby still happily crawled everywhere and made many attempt to stand up with furniture support of course!

Nice to see his bubbly cheerful self! A laughing smiling baby sure perks up your day!
