Looking for a pushchair? Find out which stroller is our Mumsnet Best of 2017!
Please could someone recommend a decongestant that actually works for my 6mo DS?He's had a cold for the past couple of days (one of many) but he seems particularly chesty this time - nose is v snotty, v chesty cough and his chest sounds and feels rattley when he breathes.Am going to Boots later so will see what they say, but wondered if anyone could recommend anything.I've also posted this in the health forum, but not sure how popular that is and was hoping for a fairly prompt response if poss.Thanks.
try the NUK bulb sucky thing for the nose?
I swear by Medised - but I can't remember who old they have to be to take it ! x
Thanks Northumberlandlass. I'll ask about Medised in Boots and see if he's old enough. And thanks bluesky - i've ordered one of those bulbs off the internet, though might end u buying one in town if get desperate! Although the main problem seems to be the mucus on his chest, poor thing.
Carvol can help. Raise the end of the cot a little. Bowl of warm water on the radiator to humidify the room. Too young for medised I'm afraid.
Right thanks, Carvol not Medised. Am already tilting the cot and he sleeps ok like that until about 4am. will try the bowl of water or maybe get a humidifier as am sure this won't be the only time he gets congested!
when DS3 was like this, I put him to sleep in his little chair, rather than his cot, so he was more upright. I certainly helped for a couple of nights.Also, we've found the Karvol plug-in very good.Boots won't sell Medised for him anymore I'm afraid (although that is very good too!)
