Ok so ds is sick, on antibiotics and super cranky. I just got him out of his crib after 23 minutes of him screaming (he wouldn't let me do anything to help him, that's why he got put in his bed). So, he's finally asleep on me. I have a ton of homework to do but I'm also exhausted, I don't think I'd do very well on my homework but sleep sounds amazing.
So, here's my question: risk waking him up so I can sleep alone or let him sleep on me?

My daughter is 2 and has an ear infection and stuffy nose. I'm in the recliner and She's asleep on me. I figure if they are that sick and real young it's better to just comfort them However you can. I'd definitely never let the scream in their own bed.

 lay you and him down and sneak away after he settles again.  if he starts screaming when you lay him down with you he may have an ear infection.
