HELP! How do I de-snot-ify this baby!?!?!?
My baby girl has a cold, and is producing BUCKETS of snot these past few days. She's also developed a throat infection so she's on antibiotics. I usually nurse her to sleep and we are having SUCH a tough time lately because she can't nurse and breathe at the same time. She tries to nurse, un- latches, then tries again, then unlatches again, then cries.
Here's our night time routine, (since she's been sick); I give her the antibiotic, sometimes also infants Tylenol if I get the impression her throat hurts. Then I take her to the bathroom, get the bathroom all steamy, plugging the tub and putting Eucalyptis Peppermint Epsom salt in there. Then I use a baby saline nose spray on her. Then I wipe her nose with a warm wet cloth. Then I suction out her nose with the snot sucker. Then I wipe her nose some more. Then I put ponaris homeopathic nose drops in her nose. Then I put Vicks Vapo Rub on her chest. Then we go to bed and I turn on the Vicks Vapo Steam Vaporizer with the Vicks Vapo Steam liquid in it. Then I nurse her to sleep, (or try). None of this really seems to work, it just makes her super angry. Anyone have any better ideas?
