I put baby vicks on a face washer and hang it over the head of the bassinet where he can't reach it, but it's close to his head. Works a treat.

It could be allergies. I know of an awesome wellness company that focuses on all natural ingredients for the house and personal care products, the same kind that we are already purchasing at the grocery stores but they are much safer, much better, and much healthier. Many products out there (from baby shampoos, to lotions, to dish washing soap, to detergent for laundry, etc.) have so many toxic ingredients that cause mild to serious health problems short term and long term. I have found a great company and I am proud to also be working for them as well and even better I get to work for them from home. Many people have joined our team, mostly moms who want to stay home after having their children and are very successful. If you want some more information contact (Debra Mendoza, NewWellness4you.com and livetotalwellness.com/damendoza)

i could never get my son (he's 5 months old too) to let me put the aspirator in his nose. we just lay him back and put saline drops in his nose while he's sucking on his pacifier (so he has to breathe through his nose). sometimes it takes a couple of drops per nostril, but eventually, it either drains out or he sneezes and they fly out. :) it has never failed for us.

When my daughter gets stuffy we give her a Johnson's vapor bath right before bed time, that helps clear her right up and then we rub baby vicks on her chest at night time. They might not like it at first but it will help them breath.

Quoting Diane:

When my daughter caught a cold when she was younger I would sit with her in the bathroom with the shower on. Just straight hot water, all the steam helps loosen everything up. Also a humidifier in the room where he sleeps will help. My pedi also recommended using the bulbsucker (aspirator thingie) before and after feeding when they're stuffed up. Hope he feels better soon.



i use the nose aspirator when ever she has a stuffy nose or runny nose...i hate seeing snot rolling down so it drives me nuts so i always use when shes like that and she does hate it but if you do it before your baby goes to bed that might help you out...and im sure they'll cry because they don't like it but its making them feel better in the long run
