Sick baby. :(

Bean has caught his first cold. He was pretty cranky on Monday, then even crankier yesterday evening. Eventually it came to bedtime and I had a hard time getting him to sleep. After I finally thought I got him to sleep, he was crying over the monitor every half hour or so. I was already exhausted from the night before because we decided to put him in his crib to sleep for the first time that night and it felt very weird to me not having him in our room, so I couldn't go to sleep. When I finally did sleep, he wanted to wake up twice to eat. So I was already exhausted and then we had last night's disaster. Up every half hour or so until 4am! Nursing, rocking, swaddling, un-swaddling, pacifier - nothing worked! Finally Hubby thought he was congested and I then heard it too. We brought him down to the swing at 4:30am and he finally slept 2.5 hours. Needless to say, I ran on all of about 3 hours of sleep today with one short nap that was interrupted by phone calls. Bean sounds much worse tonight, so we now have saline nasal spray and Boogie Wipes on hand. I feel bad for my poor baby! :( He needs suctioning too, but the nurse said not to do it more than 3-4 times a day or we would cause nasal swelling. I really hope this clears up fast!
Any recommendations for a baby with a cold that worked for you?
