I feel for you i really do, my DD went through the same thing when she was around 3 months old. I went to my local chemist and bought a vapouriser (sp?) and i let it run all through the day with a lil eucalyptus oil in it. You can also buy a blend of eucalyptus and lavender which is done buy vicks i think. Check with your chemist as this was where i got mine from. Helps unclog their noses.
Also before bed give them a nice warm bath or even take them in the bath with you. Leave the bathroom fan off so they get the steam. They tell you for babies that are really clogged up and get weasy to stand in the bathroom with no fan on and let the hot shower run (obviously dont put the children in it) but the steam helps unblock their noses.
If it think of anything else i will get back to ya:d
PS. the vapouriser is a TAAV one that i bought and i only paid $40. worth the investment i think, it even helps my DH sleep (men can be so grumpy when they are sick lol)

She's not that bad I guess. When Liam was really little
she stayed for a week, you know what there like
" Oh he must be hungry" Im sooooo sick of people saying
that even my mum was saying that 2.
my mother and father in law are up in arms caue I wont circumsise him .........every body has an opinion on what you should do adn how to act ....my mum tell me that I dont play with Luke the right way WTF!!!!!...like she ever played with us GGGGGRRRRR
The nasal spray is great! If you can';t get to the chemist then just use luke warm water with a little bit of salt in it. The Fess is better because it comes with a sucker that you suck the snot out with, but all it is is salt water.
It has given me many hours of sleep!!!
