Yeah I agree you might have to transition. He might sleep better once transitioned.

I would do Motrin and Tylanol. They can be given at the same time. That will help. Or you can give them on alternating 3 hour intervals. That really can help. Are you nursing to sleep still? If so, I recommend starting to wean at night. Allow him to cuddle with you as usual, but no more nursing at night. Maybe cut down feeding by cutting down how long each feed is first, then take one away.

We cosleep too...have with all of mine (6) my son who is now 5 nursed until he was 2 1/2 he would wake every hour too. I finally figured out that I was just a pacifier . So I started laying on my stomach with arm at my side so he couldn't get to his "boobahs" he cried for a while at first but eventually woudl go to sleep it prolly took a good month to get him sleeping better .

Re: The 25lb Challenge January thread

My mom just bought the kids a new TV to replace their old tube TV. It was dying and 15 years old. It was bad. The kids are excited. They trashed their room so poor DH had to clean the room before he hangs it. We have to hang it as DS3 will destroy it.

They got in trouble. They both are on the spectrum and are not easy to handle. They are being rotten right now. Why do kids have energy while sick?
