Congested infant

I have a 3 month old baby and he is having a lot of nasal congestion. I am having him sleep in his carseat to keep him elevated and I also put a few drops of eucalyptus oil in our humifier. Can anyone give me some other natural/home remedies for congestion? Thanks!

  • Your doing all I could think of. Gice the Dr a call and see if there is anything else you can give for it. If it's really bad then the baby should be seen by the Dr.

  • saline drops in the nose and suck it out before bed. Poor guy, I know it sucks we just went throught this for about a month for our 3mo DD

  • A couple of drops of saline in his nose to loosen it (don't spray it!), or if you're breastfeeding, a couple drops of breastmilk would work better.

  • A warm bath w/lots of steam...even if you just sit in the tub or bathroom w/him (if he isn't in the tub) the steam will help loosen up some of that.
