Hi my name is Danielle, I'm 23 and a mother of 2, my girl who is turning 3 next month and my boy who is 6months old. Well we all went for a 50th wedding anniversary for my side of the family and when we came back my son hasn't been sleeping very well. He woke up about 3 or 4 times Sunday night, and was only able to sleep for about 3 hours total. I found that he was constipated so I gave him a warm bath first thing in the morning and used some lavendar scented bath salts to help soothe him. Then a few hours later I ended up giving him another bath with baking soda(It's said that the baking soda helps relax tense muscles in the rectum). I left him in there for about a half an hour. And an hour later still nothing so I called my husband and he bought some prune juice and suppositories. So we used 1 and within 5minutes, my son was able to do his business. Now my son has a bad cold with a sore throat and has a rash breaking out all over his face, and he still won't eat very much. He's eating at most 3ounces at a time, so I put on some baby vicks to see if it will help with his breathing. What else can I do to help him?
