Sleeping Setback

The last two nights have been rough. Gilbert just isn't sleeping. We think it has something to do with a lingering cough that two weeks into it is now going to take us to the doctor.

I think he just has trouble breathing because he is so stuffy and the has a coughing fit he can't get comfortable. Last night we were up at separate times with Little Man and it probably cost him two hours not to mention breaking up his good REM sleep!

We'd hear him up and talking, look in the monitor and find him just sitting up, holding his blanket. Sometimes on the bed. Other times on the floor. You could tell he was just in a daze and wanted to sleep, but just could not get settled! Poor guy!

Still his fun self, he had tremendous tired eyes this morning. My money is he'll crash today for a long nap. Fingers are crossed!

One thing that has really worked for us is a good old fashioned steam before bed. We run the shower at the highest temp and close the bathroom door and just hang out in the bathroom for as long as I can stand it. I hope he's feeling better soon!
