Works for Me Wednesday – Keeping an eye on sick kids


A while back I participated in a WFMW Backwards edition and on that post I had asked for advice on a child that won’t sleep in her own bed and is always in ours, a woman named Lisa gave us advice that we can’t repay her for and I posted about it here. What does that have to do with anything? Well, both of my kids have had croup the last two weeks. L had it for 4 nights where she was waking up sobbing and not able to breathe and now J is experiencing the same thing. Poor babies.

We place the crib mattress next to our bed and the kids can lay on there, like last night I needed to hear J’s breathing if there was a problem it was quicker than getting him off his loft bed. This tip keeps coming back to be the best thing we have ever done for all of our sanity.

    Your method sounds way better than my sleeping on their hard floor
