The worst thing about winter
Some tips and tricks to help your children with colds and flu.
Last night I lie awake listening to my 9-month-old cough like an old smoker, I imagined the worst case scenario. The words whooping cough

Listening to a sick child wheeze during the night and wake himself up periodically is not fun. Not for the worrying parents and especially not for the sick child.

dire and that we could take him to the doctor in the morning.
