Hi, my baby girl is 10wks and has had a cold since Saturday. With this cold she is being sick about twice a day sad We are giving her Nasasol drops to clear her nose, but is there anything else I can do to help the cold/ sickness go? and roughly how long do colds last in babies?
Thanks smile

Hi TruffleTasha,

Poor baby! I think you can now use small doses of calpol, (after 2 months) and I also used carvol, which are little capsules you can sprinkle around the moses basket to help babies breathe - these do smell quite strong so don't put them anywhere too near her face/skin. It shouldn't last too long - but if you are worried maybe try ringing your hv or dr?

Hope she gets better soon, xx

ps if she is being sick, keep offering her milk so she doesn't get dehydrated x
