Want to breastfeed but need some help? Mumsnet's Breastfeeding pages are crammed with honest advice.
ive wiped her nose as clean as I can, anything else I can do to help?She's almost 9 months & won't let me help latch or anything.
Saline nose drops from the chemist if you can get there. They help a lot
Won't get a chemist til tomorrow. Nothing open now.She's been ok til this feed but I think it's cos she usually settles down for a good cuddle now.
Anecdotally, you can home make the solution...it's just salt and cooled boiled water.
You can also put a drop or two of breastmilk in each side of baby's nose. Just hand express first - don't attempt to take aim!
She's settled down a bit now, we've beenout to pick up dd2 & I think it's helped her calm down
Dd used to get this a lot. Being upright helps. I found that the saline helped thin the nasal mucus (yum) and it would drain out leaving her nose clear.
I was sitting her up to feed but she's getting a bit big on me to reach my chest! She's settled for now anyway. I'm going to get a rest too as we've had a couple of rough nights & I've got her cold too
Hope she and you have a good night's sleep
She was ok once she got down. Fed again at 10 then slept til 6:30 which is good for her!
Thats good then Harriet. We had this with DD too, she was later diagnosed with Hayfever. Steam and a nasal aspirator worked for her.
