Desperate for advice, exhausted mum!!
Hi just to give a bit of background, my 10 month old gas been waking up crying anything up to 15 times a night for the last week and a half, we assumed due to being full of cold. I work 10pm till 7am fri sat sun and sometimes a tues or weds stacking heavy crates of products in tesco so I'm already knackered! 5 year old developed hand foot and mouth on Sunday, the nurse said it was the worst case she had ever seen, and now it seems the little one has picked this up albeit only very slightly.
tonight she has screamed all night and is refusing to sleep so I am sat downstairs with her. She's had medicine, teething gel and a bottle but nothing is working! She's tired because she's yawning but I just can't get her to stay settled, she's quite happy being held and sat on my knee but screams when I put her down. Docs checked her today and she definitely doesn't have an infection that requires antibiotics.
any tips or advice to help her settle appreciated. Her dad works weekdays and is also working Saturday and I'm due to start my 3 night shift stretch tomorrow. Were both exhausted not to mention my 5yo who's being kept awake and trying to recover Herself.
thanks in advance x
