Hi.. My baby is 4 months old.. she stopped breastfeed since last three days and took only bottle feed.. yesterday, we took her to our paed ..he checked and prescribed sinarest af drops and mucolite drops. ( 3 drops each)... I thought both of them as nasal drops and gave them in the nose yesterday evening( 3 drops of sinarest in each nostril and 3 drops of mucolite in each nostril).. Today morning after giving sinarest again in the nose, I realized that it is an oral drops and checked with my paed as well.. Didn't give mucolite in the nose again thankfully.. My paed told if the baby is breathing normally and active, no need to worry.. Since morning she s fussy while taking bottle feed, cries more and takes only 60 to 70 ml each time with much difficulty.. I gave mucolite drops orally around 2 pm today. (Didnt give since morning)... after that also, she s fussy while taking feed.. Please advise if the fussiness and crying is because of cold or should I take her to hospital.. It's raining heavily and m concerned to take her outside to hospital.. Need ur advice Asap

We understand your concern. Sometimes due to cold, nose is blocked and thus child breathes from mouth. This mouth breathing gets interrupted when baby is feeding, which makes them irritable. If her congestion has reduced, than its okay, else you need to consult with your paediatrician
