The nurse suggested to steam the shower, put a humidifier* in her room, saline drops with the nasal do-hicky and that's about it. A good friend suggested putting Vicks on her feet and putting socks on over top of it. I bought the Vick's specially formulated for babies so I ended up just rubbing her chest with it but I saw no improvement. She's a tummy-sleeper which, duh, makes it all worse. I have to rock her to sleep while she's sitting up and then lay her on the good ol' Boppy pillow in her crib to prop her up enough. She rolls off of it within 20 minutes every time, poor baby. Poor mommy.
I'm at a lose right now of things to try. I wish she could understand the wonders of the Netty Pot, or at least know how to blow her nose. I really hope she doesn't get me sick. I think this
* - It's actually a fog machine. Most families with kids probably have a humidifier just laying around the house at all times. Not us... we have a fog machine that works just as good AND makes her room look awesome.
** - Thank, state of Michigan, for sucking and taking my insurance away when there are clearly ridiculous amounts of people on Medicaid whom have had it all their pregnancy and thereafter. You really really suck.
Massive Halloween entry to come later.
