My DD has had either a runny or stopped up nose for a week now, mostly stopped up. Every morning and after she wakes up from naps or dozing off for a bit it is the worst. But it's never cleared. I use the nasal aspirator(or nose sucker as I like to call it lol) but she screams bloody murder most times. It takes a good ten minutes to get all I can with the bulb, but when she breathes through her nose I can hear she is still stopped up. She had a cough for about 2 days at first but that has gone away. She also had her shots after she'd had this nose problem(started on Monday, shots on Tuesday) And she can't eat very well(she is breast fed) because she can't breath while she eats! So it takes forever. What can I do to help this? Is there anything I can give her? Is there something else I need to be doing that I'm not? I'm a first time mom and I don't know what to do =(
