Baby with a cold - please help!
P is just over 4 months old and started with her first cold about 3 weeks ago now. She had a few days where she was really lethargic and clingy along with blocked nose, sneezing etc but for maybe the last 2 weeks she has just been really congested without the other symptoms.
I feel like we have tried everything to help her breathe better but it's getting a bit ridiculous now! We have given her calpol, baby vapour rub, saline nose drops and (2 different kinds) of nasal spray. Have propped her cot at night too. She is mostly ok during the day when she is upright a fair bit but at night she struggles to breathe. I can hear it all at the back of her nose and throat and its heartbreaking that she just needs a good blow but can't do it! We also have a bulb syringe but rarely get much out using that. I called the doctors this week and they just brushed me off and offered an appt in a weeks time (I assume because she doesn't need antibiotics?)
Do you ladies have any suggestions that we haven't tried (am I missing something obvious) or any experience with this?! It really is awful to watch her struggling
