my son i believe caught my cold..which is inevitable bc im the one who mainly takes care of him while daddies at work all day so i saw it coming! i know that running a hot shower and sitting with him in there works to get the mucous loosened in the back of his throat as well as a humidifier. were using saline drops as well and it seems like nothing is working. now my question is this. we live in california and its the summer time. we have the windows open and a fan going. we currently are not using the humidifier at night bc of the fact we have the windows open..so would we have to close them to leave it on at night? our house has little to no air flow without the windows open! im at a loss of what to do. my little man is obviously not sleeping well bc hes having a hard time breathing thru his nose..its so hard to hear him over the moniter so congested! im debating on taking him to the dr im afraid they will give me the advice i already have from my books on relieving a stuffy nose! any moms have some suggestions?
