DS is 9 weeks old now & still has the mucus in his throat (from birth)
I am using a vaporiser with eucalyptus oil during the night, keeping the house warm, using eukybear rub, have elevated his bassinette and he sleeps on his side, also using saline drops a few times a day however cannot suction much out (only clear fluid comes out) as it is in his throat.
The mucus sounds looser though.
The GP said his chest was clear so the mucus is only in his throat therefore will not treat him with anything. When I asked the GP how long until the congestion clears the answer was that maybe DS is just a mucus-y baby. Going on 9 weeks now and I dont feel comfortable with the length of time!
So is there any other remedies I could do to help him? Am willing to consider homeopathy or alternate remedies (if safe)
And how long realistically should this go on for? Help?! My poor little man I just want to clear my throat for him.
