My poor son has been sick since Saturday. He still has thick green snot just pouring out his nose which makes him cough, and makes it very hard for him to nurse and sleep...

Anything to clear this up?? I have saline drops but does that really work??

I am a beleiver of attachment parenting. I am a non-cio, extended breastfeeding, co-sleeping, drama-free, silly, sweet mama who is always looking for new friends :o)

Breastmilk will work better than saline drops. Clear it right up.

The saline drops won't "cure" obviously, but they work nice to thin the mucus so you can suck it out with the bulb syringe.Vaporizer and fluids, fluids, fluids.

it will help....with an aspirator. a humidifier or if you don't have one steam up the bathroom it will drain it all out. Or baby vicks or you can get the vapor bath by johnson and johnson. they also make vicks plug ins. hope he feels better.

Everything you named i used and it worked for a little while.. But since the snot is green that means infection and he will need to get an antibiotic.. My son just had the same problem for 2 weeks and now he is on antibiotic it cleared up so good.. But the baby Vicks and the Johnson and Johnson vapor bath really works.. I had it in the cabinet for like 3 months and never used it and once i used it i was amazed!!!
