DD has a rotten cold the poor thing, so has a blocked nose.
This means she cant breastfeed, refuses to sleep when she cant breathe through her nose, won't eat, won't stop crying/whinging.
How can i help her to nap?!?! She's smothered in Snufflebabe, squirted up the nose with saline, bowls of hot water and olbas oil in the room we're i and shes propped up in her pram to see if it helps. nothing is working! I cannot listen to her weeping all day (I know that makes me a terrible mother but I am possibly losing my mind right now).
Have you tried sucking the snot out of her nose? Loosen it up with the saline, wait for 15 mins and then suck it out with ine of those nose syringe thingies, gross but effective. Also, you may have to pincer grip her head so you can do it....they generally dont like the process, but love the result.
It sounds like you're doing everything you can. A walk might help, a bit of fresh air for you both might blow the cobwebs away. Have a hot bath later with some lavender oil in it, try and get the bathroom as steamy as possible, put her in bathroom with you and see if that helps.
