My babygirl is about to be two weeks. She has been having alot of flem in her mouth and she keeps chocking on it I could tell its making it hard for her to breath I feel so bad. This is my first baby so I really dont know what to do. Anything you girls suggest to get the mucus out her mouth to make her feel better. She also has a little cough but it more of the flem all in her mouth that bothers me I could hear it when she breaths

Take her to the doctor if she has a cough. It is RSV season and at two weeks old a cough is nothing to mess around with.

Like I say on every one of these types of posts.....CALL THE DOCTOR. In the mean time, lay her on her side so it comes out of her mouth instead of back in her throat so she doesn't choke.

To the DR! RSV is so dangerous for newborns and it's the season for it. My newborn (who is 4 months now) had it at 5 weeks. We were VERY lucky she was barely affected but I still took her to the ER.

use a asperator to suck it out of her mouth

Rsv is hard.... I'm sure they told you this but saline! Its natural and you can use it as often as she needs. Also this sounds crazy, but they make a battery powered booger sucker.... It is so amazing! For us its better and more sanitary than the bulb aspirator. Hope she gets better soon.

One thing that worked well for me when mine were sick that little was to shut myself in the bathroom with the baby and turn the shower on as hot as it would go..

The steam and moisture helped clear them out a bit.
