Re: Congested 5 month old

We used the baby saline spray (I know, it's commercial, not homemade). DD hated it, but it worked really well. That, and a nice steamy bath were the best...I'd even try putting some of the eucalyptus oil in some steamy water while he's in the bath to really loosen stuff up. We had some lavender aromatherapy bath oil when DD was a baby & it worked really well. Follow that with the homemade vapo-rub & the syringe & hopefully he'll feel better. I know it was tough to have DD so uncomfortable & not be able to do a thing about it.
