Advice for comforting 11 month old sick son.

He has the flu & bacterial brinchitis. I give him 2 antibiotics & an anhibulator. I am just running out of ideas. He crys constantly when I hold him, he crys when I dont. His favorite shows are getting old to him, he hates bathtime. I do not have any gas or money to take him for a drive or walk. Please, if you have any other advice, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

  • When all else fails w/ my son we just go outside, sitting, walking, whatever. It will usually quiet him right up. Also lots of snugglin and maybe some skin 2 skin contact w/ u.

  • Get a humidifier, a cool running one, or one that uses vic's. Do you have a rocker or a swing youcan swing in? Read to him.
