  • run a humidifiyer for him as well as using the suction and there alos is over the counter stuff for babys like we take for congestion
    talk to your dr and see if he or she can give u a percription and a refile to keep onhand
    u will be fine and i have never read on here anyone someone bashing
    they do not need to know your situation we r all here to help eachother out and to vent
    taking care of a baby is a fulltime job
    bless u

  • at the pharmacy there should be a shelf dedicated to saline sprays. i use a gentle one for kids (cannot remember the brand but I think its canadian)

    a quick spritz, wait a minute to let the saline loosen it up then suction. but DON'T do it too hard, and don't do it too frequently. I think I was told once or twice a day should be the limit
