Nasal Congestions

Hello! Friends, 

Today I am going share the details of nasal congestion in babies. It is very difficult state of baby’s health. And as parent it is very hard to see the baby suffering.

What is Nasal congestion and its effect?
Nasal congestion means stuffy nose. It happens when the tissues inside the nose swell or produces mucus.  A newborn with a stuffy nose may snort when breathing and sound snuffly.  If the baby has a stuffy nose they may breathe through their mouth, which make harder for them to feed. Due to which it remains hungry. One cause leads to another and baby becomes cranky and disturbed. Baby cannot sleep peacefully and hence get deprived of sleep and feel drowsy. The most worst part is baby doesn’t understand and doesn’t know to blow the nose to clear the discomfort.

What are the causes?
There are several causes of nasal congestion. Such as dry air, irritation due to dust, cigarette smoke, perfumes or even a little bit of milk and viral illnesses like cold or flu.

What are the treatment?
There several ways to handle this situation. First moisten baby's nose. Then use a wet cotton soaked in warm water and carefuy clean up the mucus. Run a humidifier or cool-mist vaporizer near your baby's crib. Nasal suction bulb also helps to clear mucus from the nose. 

My Experience
As mother, I had a tough time when my baby suffered from this nasal congestion specially in winter and rainy seasons. As new mother it was very difficult to understand what exactly baby's discomfort. Tried 'N' numbers of home remedies and above mentioned treatments. But my baby was comfortable when my pediatrician suggested to use Nasivion nasal drops. These drops showed good effect and relieved my baby. My daughter was really restless due to stuff nose but when I sprayed the Navision nasal drops she was relaxed, fed milk to kill her hunger and slept in peace for continuous six hours. That was such a relief for me. From that point of time this drops are always with me wherever I go. Happy baby Happy mother, infact #happynosehappymom.
