I just wondered if anyone has any pearls of wisdom to help my 7 month old dd feel more comfortable at night with a cold! Having been up a lot of the night trying to make her comfortable I'm wondering what I can do for her tonight to make her comfortable, please help! She is so bunged up with snot!

Try elevating the head of her mattress with a rolled up towel or similar & snuffle babe on the soles of the feet under socks. Good luck, nothing worse than when they are not well!

Do you have a snot sucker? They are grim but remarkably effective ....

Hello! Thank you for your replies! I put snuffle babe on her feet last night and elevated the cot so thank you for the tips. We do have a snot sucker but she gets so het up when we try and hold her to use it! Where does all the snot come from! The poor mite is teething too so all in all isn't chirpy (funnily enough!)! The night could have been worse, I was up quite a bit three then she slept til 6.30 so that was good! Thank you for the advice!
