Can babies breathe through their mouth if their nose is stopped up while asleep?

Can babies breathe through their mouth if their nose is stopped up while asleep?

Depends on age/posit: In the first 6m the neck is so short the baby must hold the head up & back to drop the jaw & mouth breathe. This is not a natural position so babies seldom sleep well.The growth of the neck by about 2-3 cm over that time allows the head to be neutral with the jaw open.

How much salt do I put in the water for drops to clear my baby's air way? He is 6months old he's sleepy but can't stay sleep because he can't breathe thru his nose he's had a cold for about a day

Homemade saline drop: If your baby can't eat because his nose is so stuffed or if he's working harder to breathe (look at his chest without close on and watch him breath) then you should seek care from your doctor. Saline drops are: 8 ounces of water (1 measuring cup) with 1/2 teaspoon of non-iodized table salt and a pinch of baking soda. Use a fresh batch every time. Only use two drops at a time. ...Read more

I'm sorry: to hear that you have to deal with something like this. I know it's probably very difficult and applaud you in your desire to seek help. You're best bet is to work with your primary care doctor to get a referral to a psychiatrist and/or a therapist in your local area. That's a good point to start from to get you on the right track. ...Read more

Are you on Ventolin: for asthma, or is he? If you are concerned that he may have obstructive sleep apnea or asthma, video him for 5-10 minutes while he sleeps.
