All last week my DH had a nasty cold. Actually, half of the people in MA seemingly had said cold and my DH got it while we were there. Anyhow, DS started to get the sniffles the day before we left. Nothing bad, he just sounded a little different to me (nobody else would've noticed it). In the days since he's been a little more needy, but otherwise fine.
That seemed to have changed last night. Laid him down to sleep and he woke up within a few mins scared to death. He'd sounded a little raspy, so I'm assuming he had drainage, got scared he couldn't breathe and freaked the eff out. Got him back to sleep and laid him in his carseat (not something I do regularly, but I needed something with a better angle and was one handed). He got 4 hours total of sleep in there (two 2 hour stretches). From about 3am till 7 we were in the glider. All he wanted to do was suck and the only thing he'll suck on is me. Holy hell are my nips raw right now.
Any suggestions on things I could do to make DS feel (and sleep!) better? It seems to be a drainage issue mostly, with a touch of a stuffy nose starting. Oh & no, I haven't had it yet. At this point I'm praying I don't until he's at least on the upswing.
