Want the sleep but can't put baby down

My DD2 has been congested since birth (now 4 months), it comes and goes in severity but never fully goes away.

She must have just caught a cold as over the last week it’s been getting worse and tonight it’s horrendous.

We were at a wedding tonight and had an amazing time, I’m so tired but every time I put DD2 down she starts choking/coughing/spluttering.

Am I going to have to spend the rest of the night With her upright on my chest???

Poor DD and poor you. flowers Can you raise the head end of her cot?

We had the same with our DD, a Vicks paediatric humidifier really helped.

Sorry OPflowers in my experience yes you are. I make myself a pillow fort so I can hold the baby and still sleep with my neck and arms supported. Just as a warning my DS was like this for about a week with a cold recently confused

Thanks, I eventually put her down and she slept another couple of hours.

She’s woken up with a barking cough and now I’m paranoid she has croup sad

The 6 hour drive back home is going to be fun!
