My son is so sick...

My 5 1/2 son is so sick he keeps coughing and crying and all he wants to do is be held by him mommy which I dont mind the snuggling time but at the same time mommy needs some time to herself especially when it comes to potty time. I have vics rubbed on his chest and also have a humidifer going like 24/7 with him I have been giving him tylenol for his fever any other suggestions would be great thanks!

  • It's hard to see your baby sick. You'd do anything to fix it. You may have to put your mommy time on hold till he's better and doesn't need constant snuggling, although it won't hurt him if you lay him down long enough to pee.

  • have you taken him to the doctor? He could have strep. Sounds like you're doing everything you can. Just keep it up. I hope he feels better soon.

  • now is he 5 1/2 months or 5/5 years?

    If he's 5 months old he needs to see a doctor now

  • There is no way I'd let a fever in a 5 month old go on for this long. You need to take him in today, just to be on the safe side

  • He has the flu? Did you take him to the Dr. for an official diagnosis? IF you did all that, he needs rest and plenty of fluids. Give him his medication as prescribed if there were any. It will take time for him to feel better.

  • I think he's five and half months LS because it's in the baby category

  • Normal body temperature is 98.6. Babies can sometimes run a little warmer than that and be perfectly within "normal" range
