Congestion in infants can make everyone miserable. Here are a few tools to help treat your infant's congestion to ensure your little one can rest a little more comfortably:
1- Humidifier- A cool mist humidifier will add moisture to the air which can help thin the mucus and ease the congestion.
2- Saline Drops- These natural drops moisturize the nasal passages and flush dust and irritants to get baby breathing easier.
3- Baby Comfy Nasal Aspirator - This is the most incredible congested baby product you will ever use. It uses your own suction to remove mucus from your baby's airways without damaging delicate mucous membranes. It sounds gross, but it definitely works! It is significantly more effective than the bulb syringe because your natural lung suction is so much stronger. Plus it is way more sanitary. Here's what the inside of your bulb syring looks like:
The design of the aspirator eliminates any possibility of contact with mucus and germs. It comes with two nose tips: standard and newborn. There are NO FILTERS to buy, it just uses a tissue!
BONUS: Breastfeed as much as possible to help keep baby hydrated. You can also put breastmilk in their eyes or nose to help clear up any infections
