Re: Baby Cold

  • Saline nasal rinse for babies, then the nose Frieda works well to clear out congestion. Other than that there isn't a whole lot you can do. Just extra snuggles and making sure they eat and rest.

  • My son just got his first cold also and I feel terrible for him, especially at night. :( I've read to use a humidifier or sit in a steamy bathroom to help with congestion and also to elevate the head of the mattress to help ease congestion while they sleep.

  • During my son's first cold I did the saline drops and nose frieda, and a humidifier. My son is always moving. He is in every corner of his crib throughout the night so I have not been able to elevate his mattres. I ended up sleeping in the recliner while holding him on my chest for 3 nights. It was the only way we made it through. I hope your little one feels better soon!
  • Thank you guys a lot he is doing much better now he slept in his swing for three days and he is back in his bed now!!
