What do I do if I forgot to count the Omer one night?

by Rabbi Naftali Silberberg

1. If one did not count the Omer by Maariv, it can be done the entire night with a blessing.1

2. If one did not count the Omer throughout the night, one can count the Omer on the following day without a blessing. From then onwards, however, one can continue counting the Omer with a blessing.2

3. If one did not count the Omer for an entire 24 hour period, one must continue counting the Omer for the rest of the nights until Shavuot, but without a blessing.3
