My baby woke up today and his eyes are gooey. I know he doesn't have pink eye or anything. I know that he is congested and his sinuses are leaking... What do I do for him? Let it run it's course?
Saline nose spray and a suction bulb. Spray the saline spray in and then use the bulb to suck it all out. The nose spray will help loosen the gunk in his little nose. Also get a humidifier to put in his room at night. That can greatly help with the congestion. And Vick's makes a Baby chest rub. Rub a little on the soles of his feet and put footed pjs on him to help clear the congestion. You can also try sitting in the bathroom and letting the shower steam it up. The steam will also help loosen everything for easier suction. Unfortunately there is no medication out there anymore for babies. Just let it runs its course.
