Any tips or tricks I may have forgot about or not tried yet? Took my 3 year old to the Dr. today after it took her 2 hours to fall asleep last night and then after a few hours she was up again for 3 hours. Her ears and chest are clear. They told me to push fluids and things that will coat her throat. We do a humidifier, teaspoon of honey, fruit tea with honey and lemon, I've given her Benadryl on occasion, she had a warm shower before bed, I gave her an extra pillow to raise her head. I'm desperate for some sleep for both of us. She only napped a little over an hour today... most of which was on the couch with me.
