Whenever your baby gets a cold, you really do not have many options as far as helping to relieve his or her congestion. I have used these Little Noses saline drops and found that they are quite effective in helping to break up congestion, but after two children I know that it is nearly impossible to go through the process of putting the drops into their noses and aspirating them without a lot of screaming and crying. The fact that it works and is safe for them outweighs the fight, but it still stinks to have to do it. I do recommend using a saline drop for your baby when he/she is congested, but if you ask your child's pediatrition, he/she will probably give you a formula to make them yourself, which of course is much more cost effective since it's only salt and water! If you cannot stand the crying associated with this solution, you might want to try using an aspirator and humidifer together to loosen up congestion.

A CLEAR NOSE IS IMPORTANT
Babies always try to breathe through their nose - this is not easy when it is blocked with mucus. Snuffly babies have difficulty feeding and sleeping - which can also make parents tired. If this goes on for some time it may adversely affect breast feeding.
Keep in mind that it is recommended that you DO NOT SHARE simply saline dispensers, for doing so you will be spreading germs from one individual to another. Arm & Hammer also made a saline nasal moisturizer for babies with aloe vera so don’t forget to check that out too
