Little Dude caught a cold. Bummer!
Here is what the doctor said to do:
baby saline every few hours (especially 20 minutes before feeding him during the day); it becomes difficult to eat when the nasal cavities are all blocked up, so this helps
don’t aspirate too often, it can cause bloody noses and problems
Make a Steam Room: fill up the bathtub with HOT water and hang out in the bathroom with the baby 2-3 times a day, 20 minutes at a time. Obviously you don’t sit in the water (or put the baby in the hot water); we did storytime in the “steam room” the last two nights; I put some lavender essential oil in the bath water to help him relax (heck, it helped mommy & daddy relaxed, too)
What do you do to help your baby feel better when he/she has a cold?
