    Will has a really bad cold and has not been breathing properly all night. Iv just bought him into the living room so that he can sleep in his swing as he's more upright.

    Iv given him Sterimar spray but it's not touched it. At points he is gasping to breath as he's so heavily congested and iv accepted I won't be sleeping as I'm so worried.

    Does anyone have any recommendations??

    Xx

    Hey hun :hug: there is baby olbas oil but I'm not sure what age it can be used from? Or try a steamy room? I'm not sure if this helps with general congestion though. Try propping him up in his cot maybe? Xxx

    You poor thing. So horrible sat up at night worrying:( hope you get some sleep in the day.

    I was going to suggest steam in a bathroom!

    Olbas oil on a muslin hang it up securely so he can breath it whilst e sleeps !

    Hope he gets better soon xxx

    Ah poor thing. You can get plug in diffusers, they helped when Kynon had a cold but don't know what age they are for. Hope he gets better soon x

    Sorry to hear that it's hard when they are like that, lily had a stage of being like it and thankfully the spray worked for her.. I hope the drops work and the advice the ladies have already given should help too.. I think all the plug in ones are from 3 months? Don't hold me to that tho!!
    Hope he's better soon!xx

    Pos, how long has Will had the cold for? Charlie has had this one for months and today I found out he could he lactose intolerant cause he's been funny with feeds Tue past few.weeks not I put it down to teething, so just a heads up if he still has it after 3 months or so, he's prob fine though my oh had to have soya look when he was a baby so its only typical Charlie does x
