Fever, runny nose, coughing, sneezing, not eating, diarrhea,....pretty much all the signs that you are sick are the same for kids.

I have found with my kids when they over sleep they are sick, but all children are different. Have you noticed him chewing on things more then normal? It could be a growth spurt. But since it is flu and cold season, it very well could be hes sick. Since at 8 weeks theres nothing you can do other then keep fevers down, I would just make sure hes as comfy as possible.

he has a cough and sneezing more today.. he is still eating like crazy. the not sleeping part all day is not him.. he is in his bed now and should sleep at least 6 hrs.. thanks for the hints. hard to tell with little ones.

thanks.. he is a good sleeper and normally goes down when i put him to sleep.. today he just wanted me.. its finally cold here so think he might be a little sick. nothing i can but yes keep him comfy. i have a heater in his room cause living on base housing here we still don't have heat. been on my own since he was two weeks.. almost time for daddy to come home so maybe he is getting that vibe of stress from me.. thanks again.. will keep him in comfy pj's till i notice he is better..
