The first time your baby is sick is horrible.  LP got sick for the first time early Saturday morning, she woke up around 2am, and all stuffed up with a runny nose.  I was heartbroken since I had no way to make her feel better.  I didn’t have any of the “essentials” in the house so I had to wait until the morning to run out to the store.  I was lucky enough that she took her bottle and went back to sleep but her cold only got worse throughout the night. 

Since there is no manual for raising kids, I had no idea what I should have had in the house.  My mom kept telling me that since we have dry heat in my house I needed to get a humidifier soon so LP wouldn’t get a stuffy nose but I didn’t realize it would be so beneficial if/when she got sick.  I ran out early the next morning to Babies R Us and picked up a Vicks Warm Mist Humidifier and some Vicks Baby Rub and it is working like a charm.  She wasn’t herself yesterday, meaning she wasn’t bouncy and smiley all day.  All she wanted to do was cuddle and sleep.  To make things even more complicated, LP’s Christening is on Sunday, so I really hope that she is better by then because who wants to sit in church with a sick baby?!?! NOT ME!!!!

What ‘baby essentials’ to you keep in the house for those “just in case” instances??
