    Baby Karvol or vicks in the room? I am not sure on the ages you can use some of these products from but there are a few out there that can be uses either on the baby, on the sheet or infused through the room. Steam inhalation such as sitting in a steamy bathroom might help. Saline drops are another option that might help to loosen the mucous in the nose. Asda sell Nasosal (if you have a 24 hour Asda near by). We have used this on our little girl since she has only been a couple of weeks old and it has really helped her breathe more easily when she is very snotty.

    Baby karvol helps mine, also the plug ins are really good. Medised tends to knock babies out aswell, it contains something that helps them sleep.

    Try an inhalation of 2drops of tea tree, eucalyptus and lavender put in a bowl of boiling water and placed on the floor under the moses basket or cot, it really helped when Evie was snuffly as a newborn. Also how about raising the head of the cot ith a couple of books under the feet, may help if little one is not laying completely flat.

    :D
