she napped fine today. But won't sleep tonight more than 1 hour and that's only if I hold her upright. I can't sleep in a chair though, I get really uncomfortable. I've tried propping her up so that she can breath easier but it won't do. She has a runny nose but no fever or other symptoms.
I'm at a lose on what to do. I know that no one is probably up right now but I'm looking for solutions in case we go through this tomorrow.

Mom of a 7 yr old, 4 yr old, and 1 yr old. Wow. How did that happen?

My little guy spent many a night in his carseat beside my bed.

cracking the window helped clear him out.

saline nose drops helped.

How old is she? Old enough for any medicine? Its always a toss up for me when it comes to medicines, but sometimes we get to the point where I realize he needs a good night of sleep before he can begin to heal.

she's 10 months old. We gave her tylenol because she was obviously needing something to help her sleep. I do think it helped a little but not much. She and I didn't get more than an hours worth of sleep all night. I think she was just waking easily and had a hard time going back to sleep on her own.
This is so hard for me because she's slept 11 hours a night since she was 9 weeks old and has always gone to sleep easily. My body just was not prepared for last night.
I'm pretty sure it will be the same thing again tonight.
