What is the best way to put her to sleep since she has a stuffy nose, everytime she goes to sleep she wakes up gagging and ends up throwing up, it is sooo scary. Every once in a while her nose will run and she will breathe better but as for right now ahe is breathing only through her mouth. she has not had a fever. We gave her some infant tylenol and a nice bath to try and losen her mucas up. I just hope she gets better soon. Thank you sorry so long.

Did you try the aspirator? Suctioning it out?

Try putting her in the bouncy seat or propped upright if you have something that she can sleep inthat way. When Kailey had a cold, that is what I did.

Saline drops 1/2 teaspoon table salt to 8 ozs of water,boil the water first add salt let it cool before you,use a dropper to place in nose,if you don't have a dropper them maybe use a cottonballdrip in salt solution and let it drip in nose,or try to inprimize whatever way. Have you tried this in the nose.

I should have said that she is a little over 5 months old I forgot to mention that I was thinking of putting her on her stomach just incase she chokes is that a good idea?

are you sure about the 1/2 teaspoon salt with 8 ozs water? everything i've ever read says 1/4 teaspoon salt to 8 ounces water...wouldn't want to make it too strong and burn the baby's mucus membranes.

I bought the prepared drops...they come in a bottle designed to be squirted into the nose.
