So last night night wasnt good. Autu had hard time eating. Stuffed up nose bad. Big green boogers. I de-Boogyed her and she's fine...for now. Any tips what i can do? She also had milk come out of her noise, a lot, but i heard that's Normal. Freaked this mama out. Calling her pedi as soon as they open.she still sounds stuffy

1 mom liked this
exactly. You can also sit in the bathroom, hot water all the way on in the shower. And just sit there in the mist. That'll break up anything really deep. And if it gets really bad use suction. suctioning too often can cause swelling though and make congestion worse.

Express a little and use a dropper. Squirting straight from the tap is hit or miss, mostly miss.

Humidifier around her, keep her in the bathroom with the shower running on hot. Saline drops work as well and then suction. We use Nosefrida for suctioning. 

Colds are miserable and we've had 3 so far :(

Dropper with bm up the nose. Humidifier with a couple drops of tea tree oil.

She's so pretty! Is it a cold or could it be seasonal allergies?

I'm not sure. It was hot so she slept in just a diaper last night and was tad bit sweaty.

They never like anything up their noses...or bums :) On a lighter note, my dd was congested a lot this winter and I was so used to putting drops (cbm or saline) into her nose that I amost dropped some teething tablets in her nose!
