The Solution

Hopefully it's not dangerous, but we've found the solution to Mila's nightly cough attacks.  LET HER SLEEP IN THE VIBRATING CHAIR.  It's slightly elevated so she's not lying completely on her back, allowing for the mucous to drain.  It's really very fantastic.  We've done it for three nights now.  The first two nights, we put her to bed in her crib.  An hour and a half later she was hacking up a lung so we moved her to the chair.  The third night we just put her straight in that chair.  Last night was the first night I have slept all the way through the night. 

Like I said - FANTASTIC.

Dude, I let Skylar sleep in her Boopy chair for several months. I think as long as they are not trying to roll or twist out, they are probably fine!! Glad you've gotten sleep.

When Landry was congested we would lift her crib on one side and place several books on one side so she was elevated...have you looked into vicks vapor rub...I know they make a children's kind, but not sure about the age on it....but hey, if the vibrating chair works...you should do it! It's all a learning process, you have to do what you have to do.

We do have her crib elevated on one side, plus the vaporizer going right next to it. We do have the Baby Vicks, but I never felt like it worked with Aiden. It contains eucalyptus, rosemary and lavender and is okay for 3 months and up. She will be three months August 18, so she's close. Brenda gave us lavendar and eucalyptus essential oils that I've been putting in the vaporizer. I'm not sure if it does anything, but it does smell nice!
