He's sick and won't sleep!!

My 11 month old wakes up every 1/2 hour literally crying really bad. I'm a little worried. He seems to run a fever that won't go down and no doctors office is going to be open until Tuesday. I'm really worried about him. He won't eat, he throws everything up, and he seems to have a cough/sore throat. What should I do to at least help him sleep?

  • Something my dad did when I was a baby. He'd lounge back in a chair, with his feet up so his knees would be bent. My head would be up on his knees and I'd hold onto his hands. He says this did the trick every time when I was sick as a baby.

    Hope the little guy feels better soon!

  • Poor baby I hate it when they are sick. My baby was throwing up yesterday and when we called the doctor they said there was a stomach bug going around.

    What they told me to do was give him pedialite and stay off formula for 24 hrs. He just turned 12 months on May 16th so they are close in age.

    If it gets worse you can always take him to the ER also so you don't have to wait for your doctor.
