  • Have you tried a humidifier? With the weather right now my entire household is congested.

  • my son was congested when he was about 2 months right before christmas. i ran a vaporizer (which is different from a humidifier) with baby vicks medicine in it. you can also use baby saline drops. i know they make a chest rub for babys i dont know how it works though ive never used it.

  • Better out than in, honey. The breathing and the eating tube become one so if there is congestion build up in her chest, when she spits up it will come up too. Good luck.

  • Have you taken her temp? If there is no temp, a humidifier, vapor baths, vapor rub, and a nice massage is all you can do.

    If she has a temp, at all, call the doc. At 1 month there should be no temp, or at least that's what one would hope for :)
