Should I just let him sleep?

My baby is sleeping in his swing right now... should I leave him be or put him to bed properly? I want so bad to go to bed myself but I dont know if he will be okay in his swing.

He has a very stuffy nose that sucking doesnt help and the only way he can breathe freely is sitting up... The swing can be brought right next to my bed....

Is it okay?

  • if you sleep lightly but not if he falls forward ./does it recline nicely?
    Do you have a humidifier on for him? Get one right away a cool mist vaporizer from WALLGREENS is good and keep it next to him also use a steamy bathroom if he starts to get coughing or too congested.

  • let him sleep in the swing. My dd had problems like that too and the dr always said to either prop up her pillow or have her sleep in a more sitting up position. If he's already asleep, let him sleep :)

  • Oh poor babe. He'll be just fine but make sure he's close to you.

  • Bring him next to you and let him sleep. Just make sure he can breathe well and neck or head doesnt roll forward. Enjoy the rest
