Hi Everyone!
My 6 week old has had a snotty nose for the last week now. I have been using a vaporiser at night and using the saline drops and aspirator to try and clear it. It doesnt seem to be working though. I have her mattress elevated but I can still hear her choking on the mucous when she's trying to sleep. Any other suggestions? Also is regular doses of childrens panadol a good idea? She doesnt have a fever but i would think she probably has a sinus headache and sore throat.

Thanks
Crystal

Is Panadol the same as acetaminophen? If it is, I would stop giving it because it is not an anti-inflammatory medication. If you are breastfeeding, you can put a few drops of your milk in each nostril and gently suck out the mucus. I know it sounds weird but it helps quite a bit.
