Somehow my post was lost here? I am really pleased the check went well hun. Did you ask about the acis reflux you thought she may have hun?
I know how you feel about the jabs too hun Sad . I can't take them at all. Mike has to take an hour off work and take them in for me. I wait in the waiting room and get to be the good guy and cuddle them better when they come out! It's so strange because i am fine with jabs myself, i just hate having to watch the kids have them Xx

Yes hun, I did. Doctor said nearly all babies exhibit a lot of the symptoms of that but she is convinced, at this point, she hasn't got that. She said it's a lot due to the cold she has had for weeks now that she chokes a bit. Also the HV told me to just drop the saline up her nose. The doc said that's useless as it doesn't clear anything and you need to squirt it up to make her sneeze and cough Shocked I see the logic there now! She will love me for that tonight Scared

I feel so much more confident now. Doc also said it should all ease off in the next month or so as she grows. She is a really nice doc and said if I had any issues, let her know. Made me feel better.

Thank you for asking hun Hug x

Aw I was always the bad guy LOL and had to be with them when they had them. Martin once had to take Charlotte for her jabs so took his mum and stood outside because it upset him (he's a total needle phobe).

Hope she's not too bothered by them Hug

I am so pleased you are feeling better about it now hun. I have had to use the saline drops on Jake for a while now as both of mine have had cold after cold this year. He absolutely hates it and i feel awful doing it but if you do squeeze it up there it does work hun, so persevere! Jake has also choked a couple of times at night recently since he has had a cold. I think it is the amount of saliva/phlegm they produce during a cold. As they can't cough it up like an adult they tend to swallow it and that can make them choke a little. Fingers crossed her cold won't last much longer hun and it is fab news that she is on track and you have such a nice and understanding doctor Thumbs Up Xx

She's back on form now. Her cold seems to have gone away quite a bit. She still snuffles a bit at times but she's been far less rattly at night Smile

I'm (in a strange way which I'm sure you'll understand) pleased to hear Jake chokes sometimes too. I was beginning to think something was wrong with Sophie. It seems that these colds are no good for tiny noses Sad Glad to hear the squirting of saline works too. I can't believe the HV didn't tell me to squirt!
