Re: Need a little advice please!!!

Ethan had his first and only cold at about 8 months. All he did was cough a bit and sneeze once in a while, but the runny nose was a huge pain -I know it drove him crazy. I was told to just let it runa nd not always wipe it, b/c it could make the skin very irritated. When I wiped it, I put Aquaphor on his skin to keep it from chafing. I used Little Colds and that seemed to help a bit. The pharmacist recommended something called "Ocean babies" - its a saline to put up their nose to keep the skin moist. I used the bulb snot sucker like crazy. Other than that, there wasn't much I could do I hope your little one feels better soon!
