Honestly, there’s nothing more heartbreaking to hear than a congested baby. So often parents are concerned about nasal stuffiness in their babies. A baby’s nasal passages are equipped with tiny hairs and mucus-producing glands to trap dust and other floating matter, thereby keeping it out of the baby’s lungs. Because babies have small nasal passages, they sound stuffy when they breathe. They make all sorts of noises that make their way to keeping parents up all night. The first couple of months Baby’s instinct is always to breath through their NOSE. Unlike you or me, babies can’t blow their noses. so when Baby’s nose is stuffy, they can’t breathe properly to nurse, eat or SLEEP!
Parents are sent home with a bulb suction that is given out by the hospital but it is often too big to fit into a baby’s nose. It’s mainly used for cleaning the baby’s mouth at the hospital. The reason why it’s so big is because it is not intended to go inside their little nose, so you don’t cause injury because of accidentally putting it too far inside the nasal passage. Bulbs are just not effective on the dried sticky stuff. In fact, they often push the mucus further into the nose making it harder to reach, and creating more discomfort for the baby. Saline mist can also be effective, who wants to spray a wet mist inside a sleeping baby’s nose in the middle of the night?
