SKIN FRIENDLY AND ECONOMICAL WAY TO TREAT CONGESTION WHEN BABY HAS A COLD

My youngest has developed a cold and at seven months old, they really find it hard to cope with. Sleep time is agony, it’s hard enough for us as adults so you can imagine for a baby who can’t even blow his own nose. Bless him. Apart from a few solutions out there on the market including pipettes which are an ingenious solution, I must say, there is something you probably have ready at hand if you don’t have a pipette.

When it comes to wiping baby’s nose, tissue can be quite harsh on the skin. A handkerchief would be better but I’ve found something that feels even smoother.

Get a few of your baby wipes, give them a rinse to remove any of the manufacturer’s additives and use them wet or dry. The Johnson’s baby wipes we use are so soft especially when dry, they glide over the skin and you will feel a difference when helping your baby get cleaned up. They can also be reused, just give them a hand wash, but to be honest, they are so cheap I don’t give myself the extra bother.

  1. My mummy Likes says:

    A friend once told me to peel and cut and onion in half and place in a plastic bowl of some kind next to the baby/childs bed, it will help unblock their stuffy noses, it honestly works for us and always helps my daughter to sleep better. Give it a try – although i´ll warn you the bedroom will smell like old kebab in the mornings but its worth it for a better nights sleep.
