DS is sick for the first time and we just had our 4th night of no sleep - DS is waking every single hour. I don't want to be THAT parent that takes their kid in for every little illness, but after reading Jamie's post about poor Margo and her EI, I'm concerned. DS has a runny/stuff nose and a slight cough from the drainage. My parents had colds last week and DS was around them Thanksgiving. During the day he seems ok - pretty happy and playing, but at night he wakes up screaming every single hour and is sometimes unconsoleable. He has not had a fever, but we occassionally give some some tylenol at night because he feels so crummy.
Could this be an EI? I'm thinking the drainage at night is the problem. We are also doing saline drops and running a humidifier.
