My son is almost 16 months and fighting some kind of cold. He's been coughing a lot and has other such symptoms. My question: is it normal for him to be sleeping more? He's now on his third nap; before he got sick he was taking two really short naps. Today he just seems to want to sleep. I know that sometimes we need sleep when we're sick in order to get better, I just need some reassurance that letting him sleep is a good thing. Thanks ladies; I appreciate your advice.
