First time Mommy here, my little girl is almost four months and she has her first cold. Last nite we noticed she was congested and this morning she has a stuffy nose. She hasn't really been much fussier then normal. Should i expect more to come maybe? Other then cuddle her and comfort her, what else should i be doing for her? This is my baby's first cold and i am somewhat worried only because it's all new to me. Any advice would help, Thanks!

If you're breastfeeding, squirt some milk up her nose. Also, a cool mist humidifier helps too. :)

This, but if your not breast feeding get a bulb syringe and saline drops. A couple of drops of he saline and then suction her nose out. That and the cool mist humidifier. That's pretty much all you can do.

cool mist humidifier for sure, they also make baby Vicks rub with chamomile, put some on her feet with socks. Hope she feels better, and if it gets worse I wouldn't hesitate to take her to.a doctor.

Saline drops and suction her nose out, use a cool mist humidifier, and baby Vicks on her chest at night. Also, put the Vicks on her feet as well, then put socks on her.

Not breastfeeding but I have heard this before! Awesome what breast milk can do!

I'm constantly feeling her little forehead! No fever at all and hoping she doesn't get one!

Saline drops, humidifier and vicks seems to be the consensus! I will be trying these for her and hopefully her cold will go away soon!
