We have had a rough couple of weeks in our house. On Christmas Eve, Leopold wasn’t feeling well. Right in the middle of opening presents, he got sick all over himself (and me). He was fine the next day, but the day after that proved difficult for myself and my husband (and my father in law…sorry)!
After Christmas, we got the cutest little duck in the mail from Adalid Gear. It turns out, this plushie has been just what we needed!
Leopold instantly warmed up to this super soft duck. It’s filled with a bag of beans that you can remove and either freeze, or warm in the microwave. It’s been perfect for these cooler nights!
This duck also smells amazing! It’s scented with lavender and chamomile oils which are the perfect combination for a good nights rest. I sort of want one for myself! I love beanie stuffed animals. They are just so floppy and cuddly and perfect to snuggle with!
This morning, Leopold woke up sick…again! Tis the season, I guess. We snuggled in bed first thing in the morning, and he kept asking for water and milk. I gave him both, thinking he may be a little dehydrated. He drank so much of each one that he ended up getting sick ALL over the bed.
Once that mess got cleaned up, I started a load of laundry and got Leopold settled again. This time I learned my lesson and put him on a towel! He asked for his duck now, and while he snacked on Cheerios and drank his Enfalyte electrolyte drink, the duck stayed by his side.
After one more ‘episode’, the duck remains unscathed (thank goodness). Leopold is sleeping peacefully in my bed with his duck by his side.
Thanks so much Adalid Gear for sending the perfect companion at the perfect time!
What are your favorite tricks for making your littles happy on a sick day? Why do I always feel completely unprepared when these things pop up?! Leopold is rarely sick so I feel so helpless when it does happen.
