  • You're not alone, I don't sleep well when my babies are sick and I'm constantly checking on them.

  • if baby is having trouble breathing laying down, try putting baby asleep in the carseat so baby can breath better. take baby to er for loud breathing when sleeping, looks like baby is breathing heavy, or for cough vomiting. Good luck!!!
