    Achoo!

    Advertisements
    Belle seems to have her first real little baby cold! She's been coughing and sneezing this morning off and on.

    Should I keep her home, or do you think she's still okay to go to the gym nursery? I don't know what to do! She's happy, so that's good, but she's definitely making all kinds of "cold" noises! My poor little baby love.

    I'm not a mom, but i wouldn't take her. Would you want someone to bring their kid to socialize with yours knowing they were sick. Can you hook her up in the stroller and go for a run? Or do an set home workout video while she's napping.

    For me, if its just a booger nose and a cough I would send her simply because if I kept my kiddos home every time they had a cold we would be home 80% of the time so if there is no fever and she isn't acting cranky I'd give it a go.

    Well, I *know* there are kids in there with colds, and no it doesn't bother me. I worked in child care for years, kids are in centers with colds all the time. You just do what you can to sanitize everyone and everything. That's the risk I took putting her in there from the start, I know kids are germy, etc.. I just want to know if it could make her cold worse or something.

    I could do stuff at home but it's not considered good enough for the weight loss program I'm a part of. (No running, it's 10 outside lol)

    Good point. This is just a gym daycare and luckily my mom could probably watch her so I could go later if I opted against it. I don't know. I really just don't want to make it worse.

    I think if she is happy and wanting to play give it a whirl. Maybe if she's seeming a little lethargic like she may want some extra napping today keep her home. That's the thing that makes me decide if we should cancel something, like today ds has a cold and is teething and he took a 3 hour morning nap instead of his usual 20 minute one
