Am nearly at my wits end with my babys stuffy nose. That's all she has but its been 3 days and sucks!
She woke at 10pm choking and hardly breathing becoz of her blocked nose, so I syringed it with saline which she then threw up, and have lathered her bed and clothes with vicks baby balsam. Will this harm her at all? Iv also put a wee dab under her nose.
Have put onions under her bed (which did help a little...but not a lot) but first time with vicks...
That is vicks overload and it could be burning her eyes and skin.
Change her sheets and her clothes, you should only put a very small amount on her singlet if she's under 6 months and over then only a tiny bit on her chest - never ever on the face.
If she threw up after syringing her nose you have put too much saline up there, you need to be careful with that too and never do it after a feed as they will vomit.
You can elevate her cot mattress by putting a rolled up towell under one end (where her head is) and get a steam vapouriser for her room.
