  • At 8 months our little girl got her first cold and upon our peditritian's recommendation, we used little noses decongestant for nighttime. She could not breath through her nose and had a hard time trying to adjust breathing comfortably through her mouth. She would wake up crying because she was uncomfortable. It works awesome! It lasts about 5 hours or so.
    She is now 13 months. Total, we have used it 6 times during that timeframe. Just read the box and make sure you use the right amount.

  • It's weird that it's only at night in her bed. Is it possible that she is allergic to something in her room?

  • I used the little noses drops for my son when he was 8months old because of his first cold. Have you listened to her breathing at night? Could it possibly just be snoring? Some babies start to snore early...it depends on the weather outside as to what it sounds like, sometimes squeaking, sometimes sounds like normal snoring and then other times it sounds like a stuffy nose.

  • I to have also used little noses drops for our son as well at 8-9 months as well because everything i tried helped but not really well so a friend of mine suggested them and i went and bought them and Tre them they worked really good all though he didn't like it up his nose that much so it was kinda hard to do it..lol
