Post subject: Baby has a cold
My 12 week old son is really snotty and coughing, took him to GP today who just said to keep an eye on feeding and temperature. I have put some strong smelling oil in boiling water to humidify the room and keep his nostrils clear and whilst it worked at first he was not great today.
I am breastfeeding but he has an expressed feed at night from a bottle which he projectile vomitted last night when coughing (the whole feed went everywhere)
Anyone got any other ideas?

Have you tried Saline drops to clear the nose? You can get them over the counter, also is he allowed calpol now?
Bless him, its awful when they have a cold isnt it. To help him sleep, raise the mattress on the moses basket, either by puttin a blanket underneath the mattress, or underneath the basket on the stand!
Let me know how u get on x
