Poor sickly baby

Edie has an ear infection, I’m not sure how long it’s been bothering her before we realised, so that could well explain the crying in the swimming pool.

I’ve never seen her so upset 🙁 it’s completely heart breaking. For the last couple of days if she’s been awake she’s been making the saddest little whimpering sound. She’s barely eating and she’s been farting loads (that’s obviously the best part of it). Just as she calms down she coughs, pulls the saddest face you’ve ever seen and starts crying again.

I stayed up all night with her on Friday night just trying to keep her in a comfortable position. We tried getting her to sleep in our bed but in the end there was no point, none of us were sleeping. I find it more frustrating trying to get to sleep and it not happening than if I just stay up all night on the couch watching tv. Gave me a chance to catch up on Kimmy Schmidt anyway.

This morning she seems much more like her old self, thank God. Still not eating a lot but we’ve had some smiles at least. I just wish there was more we could do for her. Also that we could give her Calpol without getting into a full blown wrestling situation!
