Riley has had a stuffy/runny nose for about 3 days now and today it's pretty bad.. I almost don't want to leave him in his crib alone cause he's scaring me, not being able to breathe hardly.. It's gotten to the point where the bulb syringe is barely doing ANYthing. Is there anything at all I can do for him??
Ava just went through that....I had a couple of sleepless nights making sure she could breathe! Do you have any saline? I used little noses and put 1-2 drops and used the bulb to suck out all the gunk before feeding, bedtime & any other time she was having nose issues. Also, my doctor recommended a cool air humidifier and that really helped. She sleeps in a co-sleeper in my room so I was able to monitor her. It finally has started to go away. I also realized I wasn't sticking the bulb far enough up her nose. It needs to be far enough up there so the nostril seals it up, but you probably already know that- for some reason I didn't want to stick it up too far!! Good luck
