Taking Care of Yourself When Your Child Is Sick - Topic Overview
Having a sick child can be very tiring. Taking care of yourself is an
important part of helping your child recover. Here are some things to try:
- Share the responsibility of care with your
partner, relatives, or other support persons.
- Remember to rest
when your child is resting. If you feel uncomfortable about leaving your sleeping child
alone, sleep near your infant or sleep in the bed with your older child.
with your doctor if you feel exhausted and unable to continue to
care for your child adequately. This can happen to any parent.
