When They Ve Gotten Over Being Sick

JerseyGirl - December 5

My 6-month-old DS has had a cold for the past 2 days. Not too bad, but bad enough that nighttime = nightmare: he hardly sleeps and wakes up hysterical crying! I've spent the last 2 nights in his room, either on the floor or in his glider chair. Before he got sick, he was pretty good at sleeping through the night (from about 9pm until about 6am). Obviously, this throws a monkey wrench into his routine. My question is, once he gets better, will he resume his sleeping routine? Thanks for any experiences and advice.

Yes, in my experience. My ds has had 2 colds. One at 4 months and then another at 7 months. They never lasted longer than a week, and the first few days are always the worst. Good luck!

Hello there! My dd is about 4 1/2 months now and she came down with a cold last wednesday. It was at it's worst on Friday, Saturday and she was back to sleeping good lastnight. So it took her about 4 nights(after the cold hit hard) to start sleeping through the night again. I was having her sleepin in the swing though so she was propped at an angle because she would gag when she coughed and I didn't want her to choke. She is in the swing again tonight. I tried the crib and it was a dissaster. So I took the easy way out and put her in the swing. Anything for a little piece and quiet! hahaha! Goodluck with your little man!
