any way? steam?
ds (1yo) is coughing and gagging on it first thing in the morning - but obviously doesn't know how to spit it out yet (thankfully).
By coughing and swallowing it - is this their only option?
if there is nasal mucus ....removeing that could help prevent it going into the cheast. i bough a nasal mucus unblocker from boots and its fantastic.it suctions outt he mucus
try the boots baby dept. i think its by NUk
Oh, will love to see the answers to this my dd always has a chesty cough and mucus (It's a no-smoking house) I'm starting to wonder if it's an allergy of some sort. Might try some of the solutions suggested on here.
tatt..I remember when I first asked in boots , they also didnt know what I was talking about and got a funny look too> I sought the product out myself int the baby dept i will try find a link to give you info on the producthttp://www.nuk.de
do a search for nasal decongester and you will see what the product looks like
reduce dairy products maybe. I cant think how else you can help him get it up ..frustrating isnt it. cook with garlic and onions both are natural expectorants (allowing the mucous to clear). am sure steam would help too and vitamin c based fruits.
Yes he was up at 4am this morning coughing his little guts up!
I shall try and cut down on his dairy - but he does love cheese!
Although he loves garlic bread - does that count as being healthy garlic??
