postnasal drip in infant

8.5 mths LO had runny nose since last Monday. At night she don't sleep well because she will choke and cough. It's seems post nasal drip is the culprit that triggers her cough. Day time she is quite alright. Especially when she is lying down, she seems trying swallow down something then gag Abit. Any mummy Lo got similar problem? Went to PD on Thursday, prescribed sterimar hygiene water, iliadin, telfast and cough med to standby if she is coughing very badly. But LO seems not getting better or worse. When she sneezed, thick mucus came out from her nose. She is also teething with her 8th tooth popping out. What other ways can speed up her recovery? Humidifier? Essential oil? Balm to apply? TIA!

I went to kk and doc request the nurse to suck out baby mucus. 1 to 2 days my baby recovered. Or you can buy suction of baby mucus at any baby shop. Buy the want that have string that parents can help to suck out the mucus. This was recommended by kk nurse. I was sad and I ask them is there anyway I could do. This is wat they told me. U can try.

I use young living essential oils at night to help my bb breathe better. Lots of spraying of sterimar and taking out of the mucus out of the system. If need be, zrtec drops :)

I actually use the SanteCare Breathe Easy patch (Guardian/Watsons). Stick it on the clothes near the collar line (so it doesn’t come in contact with my girl). Has essential oils (inc. eucalyptus) that helps clear the nose a bit and really helps her breathe better at night).

Hi mummy, baby vicks really works for me! Everyday, once in the morning and once at night I will apply on LO back, chest and soles of feet. Try it! :)
