  • saline drops then the nasal aspirator help to break things up and get it out

  • Also, run a humidifier to help keep everything liquid.

  • Get a tissue! :) It's good to run if there is gunky up there, it is cleaning the germs out. Sometimes a humidfier helps at night, and I roll up a towel and put it under her crib mattress prop up one end of her crib so it helps it run down and out.

  • I have never used cold medicines for her I am too afraid after all the recalls and I just don't feel they are safe. I very rarely use them on myself they either make me tired or jittery.
