Ok, she's 4 weeks old and now she's sick. I never had to deal with this as ds got his first cold at around 8mths I think. Now she's stuffy and won't nurse well, she's crying and pulling off the breast and I don't want her to get dehydrated!!<br><br>
I've been putting breastmilk in her nose and suctionning, but is there anything more I can do??

Nurse with her in a sitting position (as much of a sitting position you can get) - maybe try using a sling. A warm bath to help mucus drain, steam bathroom if you can't do a bath.
