As the title says really. She hasn't slept much in days due to coughing in her sleep, she is bf with supplement bottles of an evening and is refusing the bottles, hardly bf either. I'm concerned as she now at 3 months has just got to 9lb 7oz and doesn't put on a huge amount which she sees a specialist for to explore lactose intolerance. She was sick a couple of weeks back with D&V so that's just worked it's way out of her system.
So far for the cold we've: - Given a nasal spray and used an aspirator although the snot is at the back of the nostril and dripping so not really accessible. - Been using a plug in vaporiser - Been bathing her with menthol bubble bath
Any other suggestions? I know it's only a cold but I'm concerned about weight loss.
Go to dr - this sounds fairly serious. Babies can only breath through their nose so they can’t feed if they can’t breathe. Any baby coughing at night at 3 months sounds quite ill though so get seen ASAP.
She's had saline drops quite regularly today but I'll do it before each feed now. Wet nappies are fine but helpful to know about the feeding Sirzy.
Her breaths per minute are 21 but she's nodded off. I'll keep an eye on the breathing.
We're meant to be taking her on a long trip to relatives on Sunday and I have no idea if it's sensible to do so!? I mean, I think it's just a cold but we've all day it including my extended family and it's knocked us.
