My four week old has a stuffy nose. We didnt sleep at all last night and it doesnt look like we will tonight either. He doesnt have any other cold symptoms and his temp is normal. I am calling the doctor tommorow if it doesnt clear up some by then.
My question is how can I help him? I've tried steam, saline drops, breastmilk up the nose, vicks high up on my breast while I nurse so he can smell it (without putting it on him or a bib like my mil suggested). Nothing I do loosens the stuffiness up enough to suck it out with the bulb. Hes been sleeping in his swing all day because I dont want him on his back in the crib where I cant hear him.
What else can I try? Luckily I got a good four hours of sleep before my husband went to work so Im energized to take care of him tonight! Help me out moms, I dont like listening to my baby be stuffy!
