Hi there, has anyone experience with cranial osteopathy for a very snuffly baby? My lo has been so congested since birth. We were told by go it would get better but still he's 7 months and no improvement. He wakes up at night, his little nose so full of mucus he can't breath :-(
Anyone has experience of this? Thanks

Have you tried saline drops and a nasal aspirator used regularly?

Saline drops and a snot sucker
Allergy testing
Dust bust the entire house, remove anywhere allergen/dust mites could hide (and if you have pets, consider sending them away for a bit)
Humidifier in bedroom
If that doesn't work you need an ENT referral

What exactly does it entail? Jumping on for info as I'm thinking my baby needs this sad

I've tried them all and I clean his nose three times a day. He's been like this since birth so obviously there's a different problem. I was thinking about a cranial osteopath. Anyone knows if this could help???

Not as a baby, but as an adult I had it for snot/sinus problems and it gave great short term relief but not long term.

We did try it for DD for colic, and had what we thought was some success, but I'm not sure that's got any basis in fact.
