My 3 month old has a blocked up thick snotty nose that keeps waking her up (not actually waking but tossing and turning/ coughing) as she's swallowing it down the back of her throat and also has little mini freak outs when it's too blocked to breathe easy. Feel so sorry for her as it looks like such a struggle! There's so much snot! I just wish I could say here blow your nose and it would all be gone! I have tried the infant fess and sucky nose thing. If it gets too blocked she won't just stop breathing will she, she will have a freak out and cry thru her mouth right?! Don't wanna go to sleep as I'm scared to leave her poor bubba

I found vaporiser helpful, and elevating legs of one end of cot on a couple of books to help drain away all that mucus helpful. It is so hard when they are so little!! Good luck

If you don't have a vaporiser you could run a hot shower and take her in to the bathroom to loosen up the mucous.

Thank you, great ideas and they are all things I can do right now for her, besides the vaporiser which I can get tomoro after doc appt. just a bit anxious, I didn't think she would get sick in the first 3 months! Yes I have an aspirator (I didn't know the word for it hence 'nose sucky thing') and that has got a fair bit out, still so much in there and none I can get to at the moment. Thank you all really

Just had this with our 4 month old. Try fess saline nasal spray (can get it from the chemist) and a vaporiser. Worked wonders for us.

Its so hard when bubs are little and get a cold. Not sure if its safe while they are little but there's baby vicks or eukybear (sp?) you can get. Make sure you get bub to take frequent breaks during feeds so bub can catch breath because they nose breathe normally while drinking.

I am having the same issue with my 3 month old, her first proper cold (everyone in the house is sick so was only a matter of time). A mum in my mums group recommended an ultrasonic vaporiser and omg its amazing!! And best of all no risk of burns to my other kids because the vapours are cold not hot (also means no mould!). Had it in the lounge yesterday and could notice a huge difference, then in dd4's room overnight and there was no wheezing or spluttering that she had been doing. Definitely recommend one if you can get one! I paid less than $75 for mine, including a bottle of essential oil. Looks pretty cool too- you can change the colours of the light or turn it off completely. Attachment 59140
