I dont understand what is wrong with me and my daughter

We are both congested with a little cough not all the tiem just once in a while we will cough but the thing that is really making me wonder is we are both so tired.
She is 5 months old and im 23 but we both seem to just not get enough sleep . It seems like all we do is sleep.
What is the deal?
Is it normal for her to sleep that way ? I mean we sleep about 4 hours at a time but then we sleep most of the day .
I just dont get it.

  • You are sick. Rest is very important. Do either of you have fevers?

  • sometimes it takes a while for your body to catch up when have been sick. Take advantage now and SLEEP there will be a time when your daughter will not sleep.

  • Sounds liek you're both trying to fight something. Take advantage of the rest. :) It's your body's way of getting better for sure@ ;)

  • It's most likely that you're just sick... but if it lingers I would have my home tested for mold... I had some of the same problems they went away after I moved out of the apartment I was in.
