  • Take the baby in a humid bathroom.

  • call your doctor and ask about guaifenesin (pronounced gwa-fen-e-sin), it thins mucus out so it can either go down the throat into the stomach and be digested or coughed out. But ask your doc first.

  • cut out dairy; it is mucus producing. replace the fats with avocado, tofu, olive oil, flax oil, sunflower butter, etc. replace the calcium with kale, tofu, chickpeas, etc.

    Plant based calcium is actually healthier than animal based. Here is a great article on helping kids build strong bones:
