Hi all

Sorry wasn't sure where I should post this

My 7 month old seems to have trapped snot/mucus in the back of her nose / throat, I can hear it rattling when she's breathing etc, I had a bad cold a few weeks ago, she got slightly snotty last week and the snot seemed to have been draining into her nose so I could get it out but at the moment it seems like it is fully stuck, does anyone have any tips for loosening it?

When she does get it in her nose it's runny and sticky so I can use the snot sucker to get it out (although she hates this)

Just worried it must be bothering her and causing some discomfort as I know it bothers me when I have it!

Maybe run the shower or bath to create a bit of steam and sit with her in the bathroom for a bit? Or try Calpol, it can help with snot. I also used to put a pillow under cot mattress to help at night.
