Question: My baby nose is stuffy and he has some breathing problem in night what should i do
Answer: Hi ... I had a similar problem... Nasal drops help with a stuffy nose.. gently clean the nose with the thin edge of a clean cotton cloth that is rolled up before applying the drops. kindly consult your pediatrician for the brand..
I also applied a few drops of eucalyptus oil on the bedding where my baby slept..
Also make sure that the baby doesn't sleep directly under the fan.
I hope this helps
Question: my baby is 5 months old and he is suffering from fever and stuffy nose. what should i do?
Answer: More important than the fever itself is how your child feels overall. If he is eating, sleeping, and playing well, there is nothing much to worry. However if fever persists along with other symptoms like vomiting, loose motion, irritable nature, loss of appetite, lethargy etc then following suggestions might be of your help -
Try removing layers of clothing, giving him a lukewarm tub or sponge bath, or letting him rest in a cool (not cold) room. Prevent dehydration by breast- or bottle-feeding frequently.
If these steps don't bring relief, call your baby's doctor to see whether medication is in order. If it is, be sure to ask what dosage is appropriate – the safe amount is based on your baby's weight, which changes frequently. Make sure never to give more than the recommended dosage at the appropriate intervals. My doctor had recommended T98 medicine for my child, that helped.
