Eucalyptus oil is not safe for babies!!!

Try drops of breast milk in the nose.

This!!

Also inclining all the surfaces (even sleeping) and skin to skin can help too!

Check out this alternative to the bulb syringe...  http://www.fridababy.com/

My ND used one with his LO from birth and had great things to say about it.

I like this concept but wouldn't like continuing to purchase the refills.
