My baby girl is 7month and she has a VERY stuffed up nose..

I try to use the nose plunger thing, but it doesnt seem to help, plus she hates it. I know there is really nothing I can do for a cold. I use a humidifier at night, and I've even filled the bathroom up with steam and sat there for a few minutes to losen up the boogers :) but nothing comes out. Is there anything else I could do? Shes still in a good mood..it doesnt seem to be really bothring her, but you can tell she is struggling when shes eatting or having a bottle. She doesnt have a fever, or a cough. Could this be from teething??? Any suggestions for the stuffed up nose??

  • Use saline drops. They help a bit.

  • I agree with the saline drops. If you can't afford to but the OTC, you can make up your own. Just add enough salt to the water( make sure it's tepid, not cold) to barely be able to taste it. I've been doing this for my kids since my daughter was a baby (22 years). My DH uses it to clear his nose when his allergies flare up. Good luck!

  • I hate the bulb syrige and so did my DD. The saline drops helpes a bit, but it was still difficult and frustrating. Then we found the nosefreida ( http://www.amazon.com/Nosefrida-USA-LLC-Nasal-Aspirator/dp/B000OS8BP4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=baby-products&qid=1253375077&sr=8-1 ) It is a different type of suction that allows you to get everything in one shot instead of having to jam the bulb thing in her nose again and again.

    She still does not love to have her nose cleaned out, but at least with this it is faster and because you controll the suction, you actually get everything out.
