My son is almost 7 months old and is having a really hard time sleeping. He has a runny nose, cough and fever (though the fever seems to have broken for now). For three (or maybe four... I can't remember I'm so tired lol) nights he hasn't been able to sleep. Nap time is horrible, he WANTS to go to sleep, but he just can't. He nurses and then he cries because he's so tired but can't fall asleep. Same thing all night long, he's just fussy and tired and sad :(
I've done the steamy bathroom, saline nose drops, sucking his nose out, giving painkillers, rocking, singing... oh, and he cosleeps with us, so I lay with him whenever we're laying down.
I need your best tricks, ladies, because we both HAVE to get some better sleep tonight! How do I get this poor baby to sleep without a fight and how do I keep him asleep for long enough that we both get some decent rest?
