    My 12 wk old seems to be suffering with a cold, she's got a really snotty nose, her temp is 37.3, she's v sleepy & doesn't want much food. She's still producing plenty of wet/ dirty nappies & she's not so sleepy I can wake her so I'm sure she's ok - I'm just a worried mum! Is there anything I can do to help her & is there anything I do need to watch out for?

    Holly is 12 weeks old, she had a cold at 3 weeks and one at 10 weeks! here's what we did to help her...

    Nasal aspirator - suck the snot out!! (you can get a tool for it)
    Saline nasal drops
    Raise the mattress at a 45 degree angle
    Karvol drops can be used from 3 week sold, we ended up using them on doctors advice at 10 weeks, just drop onto a bib and fasten around the other end of the cot or somewhere in the room
    Steam it out. Take lO into the bathroom and close the door when you have a shower, the steam will help them to breathe!

    Hope LO is feeling better soon!!! x
