First cold

I feel so bad for her. Bella appears to have a cold. It's just a stuffy nose but since babies only breathe thru their noses for the first couple of months, it's hard for her. It's too far back for a bulb syringe to work. Dh picked up some Little Noses but I don't like using it since she is so young. I'm going to try to find a saline solution later if I can. I'm running a hot shower right now but my bathroom just doesn't seem to steam up. Poor baby. Oh and I tried breastmilk but it's hard to squeeze into her. LOL Any other suggestions?

nope, sorry. It sounds like you're doing everything you can. I hope she gets some relief soon.

Poor baby - you are doing all you can right now. Hope she's feeling better soon. Do you have a humidifier to use at night where she's sleeping?

Sorry to hear Bella has her first cold...Its such a tough time of the year....I know Jillian had stuffiness, but it was within a week and the doctor told me that rarely, but occasionally, they just have a little drainage from being in the womb...Hope she feels better...
