Hi Friends, My daughter is close to 5 months old, every alternate night have observed she has difficulty in breathing due to blocked nose (mucus is hard or semi solid). Have tried applying Vicks occasionally. Please help me, my mom applies coconut oil twice a week and body massage every week. Thanks Srini

Hey... my daughter faces the same problem n I use nuclear drops 1 in each nostril 3-4 times in a day... apart from tht I heat some aijwan seeds in the oil n then strain it n then massage her with that. While massaging warm the oil. This has helped a lot.

Dear Srini, apart from medications n nasal drops, u can try home remedy. Before making your baby sleep give her a massage on her chest n back with desi ghee. All her congestion will be absorbed.

Dear Shrinivasa. You could try sitting with your baby in a room filled with steam. I used to sit with my babies in the bathroom with the shower running until some steam developed. The steam helps in clearing nasal and throat congestion and is really very effective. You could try doing this twice a day. Please refrain from using vicks for your baby.
