My LO has had this stuffy nose for a week and a half. I called the pedi office last week when she had been coughing too and they said it is most likely a virus, that the coughing is probably caused by her sinuses irritating her throat and gave me some suggestions. The coughing has quite, but her nose is still so stuffy. I can hear it when she breaths and she has trouble nursing sometimes. We have a humidifier going in the room while she sleeps now and I tried elevating the head of her bed a little. The bulb syringes don't work for crap. I have managed to get a little tiny bit out with one, but other than that it is up in her nasal passage and not reachable. She hasn't had a runny nose, just stuffy.
Does anyone have any advice or remedies? At what point should I call the pedi again?
