5 Tips to survive your baby's 1st cold!
1)Nosefrida: Infants can't blow their own noses that's why a Nosefrida is a mother's best friend as it keeps the little ones mucus-free. It helps the parent to get the snot out of their baby's nose safely and effectively using their own suction. It is very hygienic as it has a cartridge and disposable airtight filters that are clinically proven to prevent the transfer of mucus or bacterial germs to the snot sucker when clearing stuffy noses. The nasal tip, red mouthpiece, and filter cap are top-rack dishwasher safe allowing for the baby aspirator to be easily sterilized.
2)Humidifier: Babies need protection from dry air and that's how a humidifier comes into play. It helps in keeping your baby healthy by ensuring the air in your room is clean and pure. Babies are much more susceptible to congestion, they easily fall prey to infections and illnesses that often run rampant in the cold months. A humidifier adds much-needed moisture to the air creating optimal breathing conditions, allowing your baby to sleep comfortably and loosen the build-up of mucus. Moist air can help ease upper respiratory problems and soothe sore throats and dry, itchy skin while your little one sleeps.
3) Get Karvol: Karvol decongestant capsules have mild decongestant properties that help in relieving a stuffed nose. They also have mild cooling effects that can soothe irritation in the lining of the nose. Simply add the capsule contents to hot water, breathe in the vapour and the warm moisture inhaled in the steam will help liquify and loosen mucus, allowing more effective clearance of the airways. This can relieve a cough as well as nasal congestion.It is however not recommended for babies under three months of age, people with an allergic reaction to Karvol ingredients and no side effects are anticipated from inhaling this medicine.
4) Make the baby sleep with a raised head: To help open up the nasal passageway It's easier to breathe through a stuffy nose when you're propped up and not lying flat on your back.
5) Nursing: Breastfeeding your little one ensures that their bodies have an immune boost to fight virus and rid the infection quickly by supplying them with antibodies.
