  • Just keep a smile on your face and love in your heart. And think It's only for a few hours.

  • most importantly, be patient and stay calm. some ppl are against this...but in your situation maybe you could give your 2 yr old something to make him drowsy, like benadryl or whatever he's allowed to take. sorry i cant remember what toddlers can take its been a while.

  • I hope you wouldn't give your kid benadryl! Give your 2 year old some crayons, play dough, baby einstein dvds or put them to bed. Please don't give your kid anything to make them sleep..AKK

  • I would never give my son meds to make him go to sleep ! my niece is a colicy baby but i managed to get her to sleep and thank god he gave me an amazing newborn who hardly cries =) my 2 year old is watching cartoons and getting sleepy so maybe its not as bad as i thought it would be =)0
