Baby suffering with mucas at night

(5 Posts)

Hi there,
My 5wk old baby has struggled with mucas at night since birth. It wakes him, he panics and sounds like he's gasping for air sometimes plans choking. It's awful. Seen GP twice, crainio ostepath three times and no improvement. Any ideas/suggestions?
Have raised Moses since leaving hospital, I put him on side etc, have tried him on his front. It's only the night time between 11pm ish and 6am ( the crucial hours)!

My health visitor said to me today, on the last feed before bed, run a hot bath and sit in the bathroom for the feed the steam should help or Saline drops from pharmacy. You've probably already tried these but i didnt want to read and run

Put some olbas in a bowl with hot water and leave it under Moses basket. Try snuffle babe rubbing on soles of feet.
