Need advice Stuffy nose

Zintle - posted on 03/27/2015 ( 1 mom has responded )




My son's nose seems blocked and full of ucus. Im not sure what to call it. He snores when he sleeps and seems to be an o going thing. The nurse told me to burp him properly as it could be milk acumulating in hs chest and that's what causes most bottle fed babies to die. Im freaking out now as I dont know what to do. I put saline drops in his nose every second day and still... a friend of mine suggested camphor block, though Im not sure how that will help. Im a first time mom and I have no clue on what to do. Please assist.

There isn't a lot you can do for a stuffy nose. You can use saline spray several times a day and try to clean his nose using a snot sucker(I apologize for the name but can't remember what they are actually called). A humidifier may also help to keep the nasal passages moist. I can't say any thing about a camphor block because I am not sure what that is. Good Luck.
