Carson's One Month Old

Our little angel is one month. He keeps on growing and now weights 8lbs 13 oz.

Last week he contracted Emilia's cold and was miserable with a stuffy nose and a cough. Luckly he had no fever but since he's so little I took him to the pediatrician just to make sure his lungs were ok.

During the check up the doctor found an ear infection in his left ear, which is really unusual for a breastfed baby this young. Emilia gets them all the time so I should have expected it. He also had a thush infection in his mouth. So he's taking antibiotics for one and antifungal medication for the other.

Luckly he is such a mild mannered baby he doesn't fuss much even when he's sick.

Emilia loves her little brother and her job of older sister.
