    Default Baby girl chocking on drainage, can barely nurse

    My little one is almost 9 months old and we have had a nasty virus going around. Her sister is 5 and has croup. (typing while holding her) low grade fever, decrease in appetite mostly b/c she cant breathe, decrease in diapers but an ok number of them. She is chocking and gagging on drainage, terrifies me that she wont be able to remove it. and her crying as of tonight sounds hoarse... any thoughts, suggestions, advice would be helpful, thanks...

    So sorry you have 2 sick kids on your hands! I would keep the humidifier going, maybe take the little one into a steamy bathroom. And call the doc! If baby is really choking on drainage, it might be time for some meds for her.
    Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
    Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"

    My 3 year old had croup over the summer (he was still 2 then) and the only thing that helped was the steamy bathroom. Should help your baby's drainage, as well. Keep her head elevated - put some pillows or folded blankets under the mattress she sleeps on.

    This might help a little with any cough/nasal congestion. I slather it on my baby's feet and put socks on. I also put a little on the chest. It's non-medicated, so it couldn't hurt to try it:
