Natural ways to help Decongest a Baby with a Cold

December 17th, 2013 | Posted by nikki in Blog

When your baby is sick, you just can’t relax. Parents know that their babies have trouble breathing when they have a cold. They also have trouble sleeping and this keeps everyone up and prevents them from healing faster. Helping to decongest your baby helps to rid the body of germs and mucus while ensuring peaceful sleep for the whole family.

Elevated sleep

You can help your baby to sleep by slightly elevating their upper body. Just fold a towel in half, and half again and slip it under the top part of their mattress. This will elevate the upper chest and head so that they can breathe easier and it also helps to prevent congestion.

Nasal Aspirator

Nosefrida is a doctor recommended nasal aspirator that you can use to get mucus out of your child’s nose. It was invented in Sweden by a trained Ear, Nose and Throat Specialists, and has been used by Swedish Moms and Dads for years.

  • Made in Sweden

It is safe to use and causes no injury to you or your child. No more runny noses!


Be absolutely sure that children in the room cannot reach the humidifier and pull hot water down on themselves. Safety is the most important factor when considering a humidifier. If you cannot guarantee that your kids won’t reach it, opt for a cool mist humidifier. If you don’t have a humidifier, place baby in the bathroom in a baby chair and turn on the shower so that the room fills with steam. The steam will help to ease congestion. Don’t leave the child unattended in the bathroom.

You can get nasal aspirators and many other wonderful baby products from Healthcheck Systems.
