So up until now I've been using saline rinse when dd has a stuffy nose. It usually takes 3-4 days but it helps clear her up. (She's had 2 other stuffy noses in her first year so it's not like this was a common occurrence) This morning I finally decided to try breast milk, since she and I both woke up stuffy, and she could only nurse for about 5 sec before stopping to breathe. I did a medicine dropper technique and she only fussed a couple minutes and within 5 min the stuffiness was gone and she could nurse without problems!
I never would have known this without you wonderful ladies! Thanks!!
