    Is there any way you can prop her up to sleep a little? also steam in the room shes sleeping in might help a little, Pan of hot water or wet towel on her radiator etc, hope she feels better soon xx

    I was advised to place them in the bathroom in their chair and you have a hot shower, the steam helps to clear their nose.

    I used saline drops on alex because he was too young for any other medication. You can buy them cheaply in most supermarkets or the doctor can prescribe them. I propped alex up in his moses basket and regularly cleared his nose with a nasal aspirator and could often pick quite large bogeys out as they were dangling down (sorry sounds quite disgusting but there are worse things in life!)

    Saline drops are the drops hun ...

    Most places sell them Asdas have them down the baby nappy isle , Oscars only 4 weeks and full of stuffy nose.
    I allso use baby vapour rub on his sleepsuit and Roll a blanket up and put it under the Matress of his moses basket so he is angeled up (Mw told me totally safe) .

    Good luck hun hope it passes i fully sympathise . x .
