DD is struggling to take a bottle due to really bad cold/stuffed nose.

Is not off food.

Will i be ok for a few days not stressing over her milk intake?

I have been making her porridge and rice and managing to get about 5oz of milk into it and she is eating that no problem.

Also eating yoghurts ok

any other suggestions welcome smile

I wouldn't worry. Just keep offering and let her eat / drink what she wants. In worst cases I ended up feeding mine jellies just to get liquid into them. We used childrens Olbas oil - found a few drop on the shoulder of their clothes about 10 mins before feeding time cleared the airways enough to take a better feed. Hope this helps!

you can get saline sprays/drops for babies that should help clear her nose.
