Ember had a runny nose last night when we picked her up from daycare. She also sounds congested when she whines. Her congested whine is so cute, I'm such a horrible mom for loving her congested whine.

I suctioned out her nose 2x last night and once this morning. How often am I supposed to suction her nose? I only did it when it seemed pretty runny and I used saline first.

I have the cool mist humidifier and I loaded her up on breastmilk, so shold I be doing anything else to help her get rid of her cold quicker?

She is still sleeping great, went down at 930 last night woke up at 1045, fed her and she was back to sleep by 1115/1130 and she slept until 8 this morning.

There's not a lot you can do really. Taylor had the sniffles (pretty much gone now, yay!) and I just sucked out her nose when she needed it (used the NoseFrieda, it works soooooo much better than a bulb sucker), and checked that she didn't get a fever.

Sorry she is getting sick I think just keeping her comfortable by keeping her nose as clear as you can and keeping the air humidified is the best you can do. Cuddles never hurt either

PS. Totally agree with the nosefrida!

Thanks *Kiliki* for my amazingly perfect siggy!

Sorry she's sick. Max has been sick this week too and it's so heartbreaking. Luckily he hasn't had a fever at all, so i've just been doing the humidifier and suctioning out his nose. He's been so congested though but nothing really comes out with the saline and suctioning. I'm hoping it starts to break up soon.

I suctioned her nose out with a bulb and it seemed to help, but I will look into the nosefrida. Ember is not a fan of the bulb, but it helped so I had to do it. When I just saw her at lunch she didnt seem too congested at all and her nose was all dried up, so I just wiped her clean. I am hoping its just the sniffles and it goes away quickly.
