Thanks you guys! My dr (a naturopath) gave him some herbal cough elixer, and it seems to really help. But, like me (probably like all of us) he has a couple of really good coughing episodes a day, especially when nursing in the middle of the night. Is breastmilk mucus forming, like cows milk? Not that not give it to him, just curious!
Sorry, he is 10 months old. I've been searching for a cherry bark chest rub recommended to me, but can't find it anywhere. I have a vaporizer running, but it doesn't seem powerful enough to really steam things up.
trabot, the bath sounds nummy. I keep forgetting to buy eucalyptus oil... grrr! I'll try to get him steamy today. It is tough, the goo has stopped pouring out his nose, but he is really congested, like way back in the nose so it still hard to breath but really hard to get to.
Thanks for your help. He has been nursing a bit more. It is just so sad when you can't tell them why they feel like they do. And it is even harder when mom is sick too!
