Does sitting upright help congestion? My babe is really congested. We just got over 4 new teeth in 2 weeks and now she has a cold. I want to make her sleep as good as I can but whenever I lay her down I feel so bad for her. So I have had her sleeping in the sling for the past hour. It seems like she is breathing a little easier this way. Should I just go to sleep like this? The only problem is if I lay her down she will nurse more which I think will help her cold. If I keep her in the sling she will probably go a couple of hours with out nursing? Any ideas?
