DD is so congested! She had an ear infection but finished her last dose of antibiotic last Monday and now she is miserable! I've been suctioning her nose and using the humidifier and we tried the Johnson's Vapor bath stuff but still congested. It's gotten to the point where she throws up every morning.
I read somewhere that you can put Vick's babyrub on their feet at night? Has anyone tried this? Or saline drops?
Re: Congestion Suggestion?
This exactly! DD has been stuffy for the last 2 weeks and this has helped a lot!
Ditto Saline drops. Put a few drops in each nostril, let sit a few minutes then use bulb syringe. Also do 1-2 drops after suctioning and leave it in to help loosen things up. Keep the humidifier going too.
Be careful about suctioning too much, It can also make nasal passages swell and make it worse.
You can also try good old steam. Put your shower on with the water really hot and close the bathroom door. Once the bathroom gets nice and steamy go in and turn the water off. Then take LO into the bathroom for a bit. The steam will help open up their airways.
When DD was very congested I used saline drops, then suctioned out her nose. Then I put a little dab of Vics Vap-o-Rup under her nose. That's what my mom used to do to us.
