NOW they tell me!
No one tells you to expect your baby to get sick once a month, and no one tells you that they will run a scary-high temperature for 5 days! And no one tells you that then they will run a scary-low temperature. And no one tells you that you can give Motrin and Tylenol because they do different things, and no one tells you that it's ok if your baby doesn't want to eat for those 5 days (as long as she drinks), and no one tells you that you have to go to the doctor four times in 1 week, and no one tells you that your baby will wake up crying in the middle of the night and feel like she is on fire, and no one tells you that you will sit and rock your sick baby for 2 hours while she sleeps because she just wants to be held, and no one tells you what it really means to be worried sick. And no one tells you that even though you don't think so when you are going through it, you (and she) will survive. Yeah, where was all that in the manual?!?!
