OK....so kids really need their routine! I totally understand that now!
For the pass 4 days of CNY, my kid only ate half of what he would normally eat.
It started out on the 1st day itself when he wanted to take his morning nap and I had to cart him off to my inlaws place. By the time his mid morning feed came, he was too wired up to swallow anything! Then people came and people came and people came....and you bet this inquisitive fella will be looking all around with those big wide eyes. And adorable as he is, people will be kissing and hugging and carrying him!
I heard a 'matured' cough or two.....Oh Lord....that doesn't sound good at all!
He was rubbing his eyes (a SURE sign of tiredness) by 2 pm.
By evening....boyboy was SICK....again!
I mean how can you blame him? He did not eat, could not sleep and was surrounded by adult matured virus-es!
He kicked up a fuss in the car. There was a jam. We took about 3 hours and a little more getting to Ipoh. So that was about 3 hours of me having to calm a fussing baby in the backseat of the car!
Ultimately when everyone has finished playing with the baby, the grouchiness is left to the parents to handle!
In Ipoh, things didn't get better. Not because of the crowd now but because boyboy was too busy looking around and getting his kunkung to play with him. He literally looked at my dad and called for him to come talk to him!
So in between kungkung's playing, popo tried to get him to sleep. And (gladly), hubby and I took a few hours break to go out shopping and eating and visiting!
Ipoh ended all too soon. My parent's house now contain a whole set of medication to treaet boyboy as well !
Back to work on Monday morning. My baby sitter took one look at him and has recommended some chinese herbal medicine that is safe for infants to take to help clear the phlegm.
Let me see it this evening and I will blog more about it when I have done my research. She would be giving the right medicine considering she is so experienced. And it would be good info for my new mums too!
In the mean time.....have a great celebration for the rest of the remaining 10 days of CNY!
