This time of year always brings runny noses, coughs and colds to my house. The baby woke up at 2 am with a fever and cough. The terror has been coughing as well and her nose is running and won't stop. Of course Mommy is getting the cold as well.
I just hope that they do not get ear infections. The best thing to do when your baby has a cold is to put him in the bathroom with you when you are taking a shower. This morning the baby sat in his car seat in the bathroom while his sister took a shower with me. I think it worked because now he is sound asleep.
When your baby has a stuffy nose you can use saline and an aspirator to help him breathe better. I like to use Ocean brand saline nose drops. It is not recommended that you give children under the age of 6 over the counter cold remedies. I also like to rub Vick's Baby rub on my babies backs, chest and neck. This is really soothing to them and can help relieve the congestion. It also helps them to sleep better.
If you and your family are also suffering from the nasty cold this winter I hope these little tips help you out. Please post your comments. Let me know what has helped you and your family relieve your colds.
