This time of year the weather in Florida changes more often than I change Luke’s diaper. We can go from 42 degrees to 80 in a matter of 1 day, and then back again, and reverse. It takes a toll on our nasal passages and unfortunately Luke and I have both come down with sore throats and sniffles. Luke get’s to rely on good ol’ fashioned breastmilk to make him feel better but Mommy relies on this tried and true remedy. I thought it was worth revisiting in case any of you are feeling crummy too. Here’s to feeling better fast!
Well I’m sick. Boo! I almost never get sick, and here I am sick as a dog for the fourth time since Luke was born (4 months ago). Now before you say my immune system is probably down due to lack of sleep I have to say that God blessed me with one of those fabled, magical, unicorn babies who has slept through the night since birth! I figure He decided to throw me a bone after all I went through. I digress.
I guess its probably just one of the joys of the postpartum phase where my body is unrecognizable and nothing works the way it used to, including my immune system.
Since I’m breastfeeding I was leary to take any over the counter medications lest I negatively affect my milk supply. So I got to thinking and googling and came up with this super awesome get-better-soon-elixer.
