  • Saline drops are the best idea. You can spray them up lightly or drop them in her nose to clean it out.

  • I know it's gross and I CAN'T STAND BOOGERS but unless it's something I can get with a kleenex, just leave it. You could damage the delicate membranes in your wee one's nose. I have 17 month old twins and we have our share of crustiness in our house lol. Same goes for ears..clean the outside but don't put the q tip IN their ear or you could hurt them.

    Combine the two lo..when my kids have runny noses and they sleep it runs INTO their ears depending on how they lay. GROSSNESS ACK!
