    Well my poor little man has the most stinking cold ( sleeping now thats why i'm on here)
    His nose is constantly running and he has a barking cough and i can feel his chest rattling :( and his eyes look so watery and heavy
    He is not too bad on himself but his appetite is out the window, only eating cerel at the mo
    He went to bed at about 6.30 last night dosed with Calpol and tixylix woke at 11pm so gave him a bottle to soothe him, he then woke at 4 and 6 then slept til 8.30, have just given him somemore medicine and put him back to bed as he doesn't want cuddles and i suppose sleep is the best thing for him
    I feel bit daft writing this as i have been here before loads and should be a dab hand at it :roll: but i was wondering if anyone has any more ideas how to make him comfy or better quicker
    I've raised the head of his cot and he has Karvol soaked on a bib tied to cot

    maybe give him a warm bath rub vixs on him and see if he will drink as much juice as possible, see if you can get some vitmians down him as well

    awww i'm sorry to hear he's so sick :( um, do you guys have over there cold stuff that goes right into the bath water? it comes in like a baby lotion bottle, vapor stuff? you just run it right into the bath water and its really soothing. maybe if you could find that in a store there it might help?
    i hope he gets better soon xxx

    Aww thanks guys he seems a bit perkier now, is trying to attack Emily so...... :D

    I resorted back to 7 month Jar food as i think his throat is a bit scratchy but at least he ate it

    I think you can get some stuff for bath but not sure anyhow he is not happy with bath at minute which he usually loves

    Makes me wonder if he is feeling all achey, you know like we do sometimes when everything aches and hurts :?

    Aww thanks girls
    He seems loads better this morning , a lot of the redness round his eyes has gon, though they still look heavy
    He hasn't coughed all morning which is a good sign and his nose seems to be running less

    He has his MMR on Wed and that new one so crossed fingers he is good for that

    He ate a jar of food last night so that is an imporovement aswell

    You just feel so bloody helpless don't you??
