Mylee gets super congested during the night. I think it is breastmilk going up her nose in teh back of her throat when she burps or spits up. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
Is there anything I can do to help her or prevent it from happening?<br><br>
We nurse laying down. She sleeps with me.<br><br>
Thanks <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

My son had been getting congested toward morning, so much so that I was getting up and sitting with him in the rocker until it cleared up a bit. I cut dairy products out of my diet in hopes of clearing up his rash and lessening his spitting up. It worked for those things, but I was surprised that his congestion cleared up alot. He can sleep at night without me having to sit him upright to clear the congestion. He does still have a little congestion, but not nearly as bad as it was.

My son was getting a bit congested at night, but since we put a humidifier in the bedroom it hasn't really been an issue.

Mamaw....when you eliminated dairy...does that mean ALL dairy? Even 2-3 T. in my morning coffee? I'm having the same issues...thanks for any advice...

I have found that the humidifier helps us also. On the nights it has been off DS has been congested but better during the day. I have it on all the time now.

Yeeeeah, sorry to say, it has to be EVERYTHING. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
And it's more than just the "milk" "icecream" "cheese and yogurt" thing - check ALL labels for derivatives (whey, casein, "milk solids," butter, etc.)<br><br>
Just fyi. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

DS had GERD, and we were able to stop Axid around 6 months. However, since then, he often has a stuffy nose at night, so I am suspecting tummy acid.
