    Default Tips to help my newborns cold? Help please

    Bub is 10 weeks old and has a cold. Would appreciate any tips to help ease his discomfort? I am breastfeeding but also have the cold/mastitis myself so not sure if I have any "good antibodies" to pass to him? We are all so miserable

    Fess. It's a saline spray or drops you put in their nose to help unblock it and there is a sucker to get the snot out if that is a problem. Otherwise bf and cuddles. That's all I can think of.

    Get a vaporiser!! My DS (17 months) has asthma and gets lots of colds and has trouble breathing on bad nights. And our vaporiser is the best thing we've ever bought!!

    I like FloBaby nasal spray better than the others. It's more of a mist than a spray which is nicer for little noses. Hope you are all better soon.

    Thanks so much, he is much better now was using the vaporiser, burning eucalyptus, glen 20!! Everything I possibly could really and we are all feeling much better.
    I had not heard of the flo spray though, does it come in drops like the fess?
