Yucky Colds

Roman has his first cold. Everytime he coughs it frazzles me. I feel so bad for him. He doesn't seem to care. He's as smiley as ever. I'm not sure that it isn't allergies. He hasn't had any fever and I pray he doesn't get any. Point of this post......does anyone know good tricks to help him sleep better? That's the only time he seems to cough is when he is down flat. Suggestions would be great. Thanks

we had to go to the doctor and he prescribed "Cardec" cough syrup. it worked really really well for Ezra. bedtime was the WORST, so we gave it to him about 30 minutes before bed.

hey steph-
first, thanks for the heads up about roman. i'm sorry he isn't feeling well and i hope he is feeling better soon! i am not too worried about gracie though since they are too little to have much contact with each other.

we are really looking forward to seeing you guys. i am guessing that we will leave by 9am and we'll call you when we get on the road.

oh, and when soph was little we bought one of those vicks vaporizers and it seemed to help and my friend jerusha tedder puts vicks on her kids feet at night when they are sick and she says it works wonders!

see you tomorrow.

love, jen

Baby Ian had some serious crud a while back, and the docs said to use a cool mist humidifier and to let him sleep propped up in his car seat or in his swing. It helped a good bit.

Thank you for your encouragement.

baby vicks on the feet under socks and on the back helped Jordan tremendously! We also used a Vicks Vaporizer.
