When you have a newborn baby, there are many sounds you can't get enough like these adorable squeaks, squeaks, and growls. But if your baby has a stuffy nose and sounds like breathing problems, even the most skilled parents can be worried.
Fortunately, there are some things you can do to relieve your baby's constipation and allow everyone to breathe freely again.
1. Trying Nose Sprays or drops and Suctions:
Nasal spray and suction Squeeze 1-2 drops of saline nasal spray into each nostril to loosen the dry mucus, then use a rubber suction cup. To use the, first, squeeze the bulb. Then gently insert the tip of the pear into one nostril. Finally, slowly release the light bulb to pull out the clogged sputum. Repeat with other nostrils.
We recommend using saline nasal drops before each feeding to help your baby breathe more easily while eating.
2. Increasing humidity
Raising the humidity Moisturizing the air can prevent the mucus in your baby's nose from drying out.
One way to add water is to use a humidifier. Place the Cool mist humidifier in your baby's room, near the cradle, and out of the reach of your baby. Clean and dry regularly to prevent bacteria and mold from growing inside.
It's a good idea to take a warm shower and sit in the bathroom with your baby while breathing in the warm foggy air.
Wipe off Use a damp cotton swab to wipe off any sticky mucus that may be blocking your baby's nostrils.
3. Call A Doctor
When to call the doctor If you are worried about your baby's constipation or have other symptoms such as fever or cough, contact your pediatrician.
It can be difficult to tell if a newborn is ill, a simple cold can turn into something more serious, like croup or pneumonia. Contact your pediatrician immediately if your baby has breathing problems or seems to breathe fast.
