Blocked nose or congestion is a common problem in small kids and infants . It not only disturbs baby’s eating habit but also disturbs his/her sleep . Which is too bad as lack of sleep can make baby cranky and irritated , it affects baby’s health and also becomes difficult for parents to handle the baby at that time .
The reason why they frequently get a blocked nose is because the normal collection of mucus is very difficult for the little ones to discharge . So when their nose is blocked , they have difficulty in breathing which leads to eating and sleeping problem too.
Children between the age group of 0-1 years are obligatory nose breathers , while feeding , they breathe from the nose , so if their nose is blocked it becomes difficult for them to breathe .
Hence , it is very important to unblock their nose , so that they feel good and happy , can eat well and play well .
Things one can do to unblock baby’s nose :
* Feed the baby with plenty of liquid so as to thin out mucus in the nose and help it to flow better outside .
* A saline solution also helps in cleaning the nasal cavity and nose .
* Nasal decongestants like nose sprays or drops also helps to clean the nasal cavity .
* One can use a humidifier in the baby’s room during play and sleep.
One can buy nasal decongestant from reputed brands like Nasivion which has effective products in it’s range as Nose Drops and Nasal Solutions but do so only after consulting a pediatrician.
