    Hi merran... When my DD was a bub and got the sniffles the doctor recommended Fess spray. You can buy the baby version and it comes with a little snot suckerouterer... (for lack of a better word). Basically you spray a little of the saline solution in their nose to losen it and then you use the sucker to get rid of the snot... Worked ok. Was a bit weary of it at first as they are so little but it seems to work.

    Few drops of breast milk will help unblock noses as well

    I use Fess saline drops or spray with the aspirator to suck out the snot. I find it too tricky to get breast milk in (would have to fuss around with droppers etc) and the saline works really well.

    It happens. Poor bub. She will be ok, try the Fess or the BM and see how she goes. All you can really do is give lots of cuddles and keep an eye on her. It sucks when they get sick. Especially when they're so little. Good luck.
