Ear infection, teething & allergies: Jaydon’s triple play weekend

What a miserable weekend for Jaydon.

Jaydon was already recovering from an ear infection when he started sniffling and coughing late Friday night. He woke up several times moaning and crying. By daybreak Jaydon, mommy and daddy had very little sleep.

On Saturday morning and we noticed something new. Jaydon was crying when he tried to eat and he started to drool. It turned out he was teething.

Throughout Saturday and into Sunday Jaydon’s symptoms continued. Sniffling, coughing, drooling and pain. We gave him medicine as prescribed by his doctor and comforted him as best we could.

Jaydon starting to feel better Monday morning.

By Monday Jaydon was starting to show signs that he was feeling better. Nevertheless we already had an appointment for Jaydon to see the doctor Monday morning so we did.

It turned out Jaydon still had an ear infection. Not only that but he was also having a reaction possibly to the pollen in the air which was causing the sniffling and coughing. Include teething and Jaydon ended up having a rough weekend.

Taking care of Jaydon was such a huge priority that I was unable to write Monday’s edition of “The Adventures of Jaydon and Daddy,” and that is just fine with me. Jaydon needed me and I was there for him.

By Monday night Jaydon was back to his old (young) self. Chasing me around the coffee table, laughing and playing. His symptoms faded.

I hope he never has to go through that ever again.

    You are a parent… we understand when you can not blog for a day or week. I have not been able to blog for a full week due to things popping up. So many stories to tell once I can get around to it again.

    Hope everything gets better! I hate ear infections… can not imagine them mixed in with teething and allergies.

      He slept through the night. Jaydon only got up once to feed around 5 am. After being up for about an hour he went back to bed. He’s sleeping right now. I expect Jaydon to sleep a lot today. He did not get much over the weekend.

    Last week the Kid was not sleeping through the night as well.. he was getting his last couple teeth in. Went to see family this past weekend and he is worn out after playing with his cousins.

      We try to keep Jaydon up until 10 pm. During the last hour we play with him and then give him a bottle just before going down. Jaydon will usually sleep until 7 am only waking up for one feeding. Last night he went to bed just after 9 pm.

    Poor little guy. Livi is teething right now (first molars) and that by itself is rough enough. Glad to hear he is doing better. What a trooper.
