Saturday, my 4 1/2 month old woke up with these litte red bumps all over his body. We took him to the Dr. and he said that it was the end of a viral infection and the bumps would last a few days. He checked him over and said that he wanted to make sure it wasn't hand/foot/mouth disease. My son does have some bumps on the roof of his mouth too, but not a lot. The Dr. said there really wasn't anything we could do about it and it would clear up on it's own.

It was still kind of scary. We thought it was measles or chicken pox. He didn't act like he was hurting or anything. I wonder if this infection has anything to do with the sleeping issues we have been dealing with lately? He is still waking up about every 2 1/2 hours.
