    Default Wake him or leave him??

    DS (11mo) has a cold and croup so he hasn't had much sleep today. I put him down for a quick nap at 4pm, it was a lot later than usual but he'd woken at 2pm after 1hr of sleep so there was no way he'd make it to his usual bedtime.

    It's almost 8pm and he's still asleep!

    Should I get him up, feed him, put on his Pjs etc and back to bed? Or just leave him?

    I'd leave him but my Bub gets really cranky if someone wakes her up.

    totally agree

    leave him sleep as long as possible. being sick there is no telling how long he will sleep for, or how easy/difficult it will be to get him back to sleep if he wakes

    I would have woken him for some weetbix, a bath, fresh nappy and pjs and a boob/bottle anyway.

    Always better to start the night with those basics covered! Hope his croup doesn't keep you both up tonight. Xx

    He was super cranky when he woke up, I gave him a bottle straight away (solids are a bit challenging at the best of times, so almost impossible for him when he has croup) and changed his nappy & clothes, have him a Nurofen dose, and now he's back in bed while I sit with him. Poor little dude.
