Hello again wonderful mothers. My child is 3 months old and has been sleeping through the night for about a month now. When he wakes up he is really stuffy and sounds like he can't breath. The pediatrician told me to use little noises drops and get a humidifier, and elevate his head. Any suggestions on how to safely elevate his head??? I used a boppy the first night and he ended up sliding off of it by morning.. ((He is a bit of a wiggle worm)) Any suggestions would be great!!!

Thanks and Happy New Year

there are bed wedges that you can buy at Babys R Us that work great. that way your baby wont slide off of it also there is no way that your baby can get hurt from it.

wedge something under one side of the crib to slightly lift it, but not enough for the baby to slide down.

I take a receiving blanket and roll it up and then fold it in half. Then i lay my little one with her head and shoulders on it. You can also use a standard pillow that is not to fluffy.
