Tired.

I feel like I have a newborn again. She is so restless and keeps waking up. I know it is a combo of the Albuteral treatments and just her being sick and uncomfortable, but I can hardly function! At least when she was first born I could nap during the day...now I have to work! Get better Catelyn!

Poor thing!! I feel for both of you. :( It's so miserable being sick and just as miserable being sleep deprived. Have you tried cosleeping? It has been a lifesaver for us because I can just roll over and nurse her without having to fully wakeup.

I haven't Hannah. It's just not for me. I would be constantly paranoid that I was going to roll over on her so I wouldn't sleep!  It's ok, she will get better soon I'm sure, she already seems better.  She is finally liking her swing, so maybe she will start taking some long naps in that. It's good since she is sitting up more and doesn't seem to cough as much.

I hope all your babies get better soon. Connor is finally doing better. It is hard to function on very little sleep.

Could it be from the teething too? Since Leana started teething, naps have been "un-cool" in her book and it's been tough...she is still sleeping well at night, but during the day...forget it!

Does the Albuteral have any sterioid in it?  My mom and SIL have had something that sounds like that and the steroid part of it keeps them awake.  Hope she is back to herself soon and you get some sleep!

Yes, the Albuteral leaves them restless and jittery.
