My son 22 months old has a cold, nasal congestion. Is there any nasal decongestant spray that would help. I am using the saline spray and OTC zyrtec. ?
Saline and suction.: The safest and most effective treatment is saline nose drops and suctioning. Elevating the head of the crib and using a humidifier help, too. Cold and cough medicines are proven ineffective and can have serious side effects, which is why the fda has been taking them off the market gradually. If this doesn't help, your child needs to see the doctor to see if it's more than a cold. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Is it safe to drop mother milk after a child stops running nose instead of using saline drops as saline drops make the nose dry.
Sure: Sure this is safe, breast milk will not harm your child in any way. If you were putting this just around the outside of the nose where it is irritated, then this might not be a bad idea, since breastmilk has such healing properties. I would not squirt the stuff up his nose. Can you remember the last time you laughed really hard while drinking milk and had milk come out your nose? not helpful ...Read more
I've been using saline drops & suction bulb for my 3 month olds stuffy nose but now he has a wet cough. Can I also use the suction bulb for his mouth?
Yes: Saline & suction are a good standby for simple nasal & oral airway maintainance. There is no reason not to use a nasal aspiratorr in the mouth, they are connected surfaces. As long as baby is feeding well & playful for most of the day this is a fine approach. If you notice baby working harder to breathe, dropping feed volume or appearing restless or tired an evaluation may be warrented. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Humidity: A humidifier will help, as will using saline drops right in the nose to loosen the mucous. If someone is taking a shower, someone else sitting in bathroom in the steam from the shower is also helpful. Put the humidifier right next to the baby's crib. Putting it across the room doesn't do much good. ...Read more
Baby has a cough and runny nose now he has that rattle noise/ wet cough done humidifier, saline drops any suggestions?
My son is 3 month old. He has blocked nose and cough. Doctor has prescribed Sinarest AF drops, saline nasal drops and kofarest pd syrup.
No meds !!: The first months are troubled by narrow nasal passages & exposure to dust, fragrences, smoke other irritants.Baby tries to flush these out of the nose with mucous but this often ends as congestion & produces rattling with breathing. The best rx is washing out the nose with saline & suctioning the remainder. Eliminate irritants from babies environment & this will happen less. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can my 2 month old use an nebulizer with albuterol 2.5ml? She sounds so congested and I've been cleaning her nose with saline solution for a month
Nasal wash: At 2mo the primary cause of congestion is the environment. House dust, fragrance, perfumes,cleaning products all leave scents that may not bother you but irritate a babies nose.
