Bella has a lot of nasal congestion today (the hubster is getting over a cold and I just got it - so I guess she's getting it too). I just put her to bed and noticed that she was breathing loudly. Should I be overly concerned? I feel like I should be checking on her every minute. She has no fever and besides being a bit crankier then usual, she was fine all day today, with the exception of dried boogies in her nose that I kept cleaning out.

PS - I feel like this is SUCH a rookie question LOL

Elijah had the same thing this weekend. He sounded horrible. Ended up taking Ava to ready-care on Saturday so had him checked too. They said it was an Upper Respitory infection. So basically a cold so nothing to help him really. He's already feeling better. I got some of the saline drops to put in his nose and just kept sucking the boogers out Fun stuff!! Hope your little one feels better soon.

Ty was super congested before her surgery and her ENT told us to use saline spray ( Tilt her head back and drop it in) and then give it a few minutes and suck it out.... Only us the booger sucker a couple times a day though, it inflames the airway

Also, try sleeping with a humidifier at night

Thanks ladies. I picked up the little noses saline stuff today, so we will try it. It just amazes me that, regardless of the fact that she is all stuffy, when I went in this morning to get her, she was all big smiles! Just makes me want to squeeze the crap out of her! LOL

awww I hope she feels better. I've used the Little Noses saline drops too, but I don't know how well it's worked for Abe Definitely let her sleep elevated, like in a swing/car seat/bouncy chair if you can.
