"I feel for this father. That is so scary. I hope they can figure something out until his son is able to get vaccines. I think 18watt has a good point with questioning why kids are so sick to begin with. Kids were always sick but it does seem to be…"

Flu

Has anyone experienced this year's flu yet?My daughter has it right now (type A), and it's a bad one. To make matters worse, she has upper GI issues, all the medicine makes her stomach flare up. She has been vomiting (Tamiflu is notorious for this, and ibuprofen can cause GI issues too). Her fever hasn't gone above 103 so that's a plus.

I live clear in LW. Meeting up would probably be hard. I have a pattern for infant and size 1 cloth diapers and I'm gonna try that. I have a bunch of bigger ones. Thanks, Jennifer!
