Re: Nursing when baby has a cold

When my first was a baby, he got a really bad cold like that. His ped suggested using saline drops in conjunction with the bulb syringe. He said to put a couple drops of saline in each nostril and then give him 5 minutes or so then use the syringe. We were able to clear more out that way and he was able to breath better to nurse. Other than that, patience and time. I hope baby is already feeling better. to both of you.
