    Wondered if you mummys out there can help... my LO 18 weeks has a awful cold. She wont sleep hardly feeding as she gets so fussy on the breast but i know she is hungry. Her nose is running nonstop and looks so sore. Do you use anything to stoo it trying and getting worse? I looked at vaseline but it says if used for a long time you can get lung problems. I dont want to put anything on which will sting. Alsoshe has bad baopy rash which she never has could this be linked?

    I know I always bring this up but have a look at the nipple cream the hp lanolin one I'm sure it's for cracked skin too?! And I'm guessing if it's safe for them to feed from it, a little on the nose would be fine?

    If you have any doubts just phone a pharmacy or get a docs appt. And maybe check babies temperature too?

    Nose drops for decongesting and ask pharmacy for the sore skin. Calendula from weleda for the bum x

    You can get snuffle balm which is like baby Vicks and put a bit on her chest or on a tissue near her cot.

    Nipple cream is great for the dry skin I also find good on teething type rashes.
