We just experienced our first family stomach bug. This is not one of the milestones that comes to mind when you have your first baby but it sure was a memorable learning experience (obviously by memorable, I mean terrible). After much Googling, Facebook group posting, calling the doctor’s office, tapping into my own personal mama tribe who have been through it, and surviving our first family stomach bug, here are a few tips to help you manage when you encounter your first stomach bug.
A few posts back, I talked about having the babies sort their laundry as one of their chores. As a teacher, I'm big on visuals so I use labels with words and pictures on their little laundry baskets. The babies can recognize a picture of socks when we look at their laundry baskets and both started saying "socks" (or more accurately "sahhh") while doing their laundry.
