Re: Help! 10 month old with bad cold and congestion!
Have you tried putting breastmilk up her nose the way you would saline? I usually just squirted it straight from my nipple, but you could express a bit for a dropper if that's easier with a wiggly toddler. Usually I didn't even have to use the bulb after doing it, since he would snort and huff and the snot would all just come right out, . Also, I always feel refreshed if I put a few drops of eucalyptus oil on the floor of a steamy shower if I'm congested. Nurse with her sitting upright rather than laying down. Hope she feels better soon!
