The first 3 months were ruff. The boys got sick three times and it was horrible. I would never take the boys out because the weather was bad and the 3 times I did take the boys out they got sick. I felt so bad and guilty. They were congested, had stuffy noses, Kash had a little cought, they both had boogers and more boogers and they kept getting fevers. I would steam the bathroom almost everyday and take them in there for 10 mins, then I would turn on the humidifier every night and would rub baby vicks on their chest and the bridge of their nose, and I brought Infant Tylenol to cut their fevers down. I also had to buy Zarbee's cough syrup for 2 months olds. Thank God for Zarbee's! The first time around when the boys got sick they were like 3 or 4 days away from 2 months old and I didn't know what to give them. Everyone was saying they were too little to give them anything then my Mom and I started researching and she found Zarbee's. It was a lifesaver. The boys actually got some sleep and slept for 4-5 hours for the first time. They were no longer fussy or coughing. They were also very gassy the first two months the boys had so much gas on their bellies I had to buy gas drops and constantly give them gas drops before and after each bottle. Not only were the boys congested and gasy but they got constipated too and were not pooping. I had to buy Gerber baby prune juice and I put a few drops in their bottle and they finally started pooping, I only had to do that a few times and now the boys are pooping regularly. And on top of all of that Kash and King both started teething at 2 months old. My poor babies chew on everything and put everything in their mouths. I got them teething tablets and always put them on the tongue and it helps so much. Every time I took the boys to the Dr's the boys pediatrician and nurses would praise me for doing a great job and that even though I'm a first time Mommy I'm doing better then alot of Mom's on their 3rd and 4th kid. Dj tells me every day I'm a great Mom but I was always like your my husband and babies Daddy you have to say that to me but to hear it from complete strangers it was a little reassurance that I'm doing everything in my powers to make sure my boys are well taken care of! The first 3 months were completely ruff and very hard but I wouldn't have it any other way because it has made me stronger and a better Mother. My boys are now happier and healthy!
