  • Breastmilk up the nose like the saline but besides that it sounds like you have it covered.

  • I'd add a bit of lanolin or lotion to the area under the nose and upper lip to keep it from getting sore & chapped from wiping/drainage, otherwise you've covered it all.

  • Try keeping her upright as much as possible to make it drain more easily.
