Saline Nose Drops
I am using a humidifer and saline nose drops with my 6week old and it seems she is getting worse. What wlse can I do?

Because there noses are so small the air going through can make a lot of noise like a trumpet, and it can take 7-10 days before they sounds less stuffy. In newborns, it takes a lot of practice to know what is a cold and what isn't, esp with first child, so always better to see their doctor if in doubt.

It works quite well but.....This may only be used for 3 days in a row as your nasal tissues can be physiological dependent on them (i.E you can get hooked on them). ...Read more
