My 3 month old has a stuffy nose, seems a bit more tired then normal but think that's due to disrupted sleep at night from her nose. She isn't having as much of her milk as normal, formula fed. Is this normal? Using calpol saline spray anyone any experience with it? Thinking of trying calpol but not sure if we can use both? Any help appreciated!

Thats normal. If her nose is stuffy (even with using saline spray) then it makes breathing & feeding harder. Try offering less amount but more often if you are concerned. Calpol should be fine to use so long as she is old enough & hasnt had anything else containing paracetamol.

Agree, normal as normal can be. But also, check the instructions on the saline spray - I'm pretty sure we couldn't use a spray (had to use drops) until at least 6 months. Not that either of them really helps anyway.

Thank you yes the spray is from birth. It seems to have made it looser, as awful as it sounds! We've been using one of those suction devices (haha don't know what they are called!) and that is working. Yes will try smaller amounts more often, thanks x
