NO NO Not The Bulbous Booger Sucker

Filed under: General — Steph @ 10:23 pm

Today our little one seems to be congested. No matter how many times her nostrils have been cleared with the bulb syringe we still hear congestion so we decided to break out the warm mist humidifier. Let’s hope that helps. We knew something must be wrong besides the gurgling noise coming from her nose when she wasn’t sleeping well. This little angel, since 11 weeks of life, has been sleeping through the night consistently from between 7 and 8 at night to between 7 and 8 in the morning. Every hour or so tonight when we put her down for the night she woke up cranky. We called the peds office and the nurse tells me babies don’t breathe through their mouth. They tend to wake up if they suck their thumb (she does) and are congested due to lack of breathing. Interesting I thought. She recommended the humidifier, pediacare (Luke went out to get some), and saline nose drops. You are supposed to only put one drop in one nostril then you must suction it out and do the same in the next nostril. The scary thing is that if you put the drops in both at the same time they could drown! YIKES! Who knew?
