Put him near some steam to help clear it, such as running a hot bath and keeping him in the room as you run it.
Poppy has had colds on and off since she was 2 weeks, but as she is eating fine and sleeping fine HV is not worried each time she has been round.
Hope he is OK

xx

Oh yea good idea I will try that tomorrow. He just sounds so stuffy and newborns only no how to breathe through their noses don't they? It sounds like he can't breathe properly through the stuffyness Sad will he open his mouth to breathe if he can't breathe through his nose?

That's what they say. Although I am sure Poppy often ends up breathing through her mouth and snores! I have a nurse who regulariy visits (she also a volunteer support worker) who says they see a lot of babies / youngsters atm with snuffles but there isn't anything they can do... But if he doesn't feed as well go stright to drs as that indicates a poorly baby (rather than just a cold)

Yer..Matilda had it too at about 2wks. It only lasted about 2-3days Max. Looking back oliver had it when he was born so I reckon a lot is to do with their bodies just getting rid of all that birthy gunk and extra fluid.

We used the saline drops before feeds that seemed to help and a tiny bit of albus oil on the side of his moses basket just to help with sleeping. And a folded towel under his moses basket materess x
