What do you do to raise your baby's head when he/she gets a stuffy nose?
When my baby gets a cold with a stuffy nose I like to let him sleep in a car seat to keep his head up. What do you do?
The best solution for this is to put a folded up blanket under the crib mattress to raise it up just a bit on one end. Some mothers whose babies have reflux use this trick also. Another thing that helps when my baby has a stuffy nose is saline drops. You can use them as often as baby needs them to help the baby flush out her nostrils naturally.
when my daughters were babies, i used to steam up the bathroom by running a bath and closing the doors/ windows putting some vicks or karvol in the water, taking off vests and other items of clothing i would sit in the bathroom with them giving them a cuddle until they became unblocked and then get them dressed, give them some calpol, rub a tiny bit of vapour rub on their tummy and back and put them to bed as part of bedtime routine.
I used to do what 'Babystuff' suggested by putting a folded up blanket under the crib mattress. It also helps to put a bowl of hot water up high somewhere in the babies room with a drop of Karvol or Vicks in it.
I always let mine baby babies sleep in the swing or carseat, when they had stuffy noses.
I place a pillow under the cot mattress and that raises the upper body and place lavener oil on the cot bumper
I put two big books under the upper part of the mattress, so the whole body is lifted up a little bit. It helps my daughter breathe easier.
