My 3 week old still has the sniffles!

for the past week or two, my newborn has been congested. I was told to give him saline drops and to suck out the snot from his nose which i've been doing....and I dont put him down in his crib or bassinet at night, he sleeps in a bouncy seat so he is sitting up. Not so much during the day, but at night and after he eats, he still very stuffy sounding. Is there anything else I can do??? We go to the Ped for our 3 week checkup on Tues., so just looking for a solution until then.

  • you can try a cool mist humidifier and also a menthol bath helped my LO when she was sick...it helps with the congestion. It's tough cuz there's not too much else you can do.
