Forgot to Count the Omer at Night

Question:

Dear Rabbi,

If the counting of the omer is not done yet at night and morning comes, is the full count invalid? Can the count and bracha continue?

Can the bracha be made in the morning if the sleeper awakes after full night sleep yet no immediate bracha?

Thanks

Answer:

If a person forgot to count during the nighttime, he should still count during the day, and the count is valid, however it should be without saying the bracha. From the next night on, he may continue to count with a bracha, like everyone else.
