“A new baby is like a beginning of all things- wonder, hope & a dream of possibilities”- Eda J Leshan
Along with that little bundle of joy, there comes an emotion that’s cognitive to a mother, the minute the baby is born. A mother makes a promise to her young one, she whispers into the baby’s ear that i will love you and take care of you forever.
It’s just so satisfying to see your little one, always smile and stay healthy. The minute your baby gets under the weather, you start panicking more than the baby himself. As parents, we all know that our young ones will catch the nasty cold at least 5-6 times a year, yet we aren’t prepared for it when it happens. We run helter skelter and forget that this doesn’t mean that you did something wrong but it’s just nature’s way of developing your baby’s immunity.
Babies are obligatory nose breathers, so the cold virus brings along with it, runny noses, blocked noses and a plethora of crankiness and sleep deprivation for both the baby and you. I have 2 young boys aged 5 years and 1.6 months and every time they catch the cold and have blocked noses, i’m mentally disturbed but always resort to using Nasivion® nasal spray and nasal drops for their little noses under my paediatrician’s recommendation.
I, have been using Nasivion® for my little ones, to help them recover from their colds gradually and peacefully. They tend to sleep better and instead of getting up 4-5 times in the night, they get up about 1-2 times.
Dosage of Nasivion® Nasal Saline Solution:
Instil 2-3 drops / sprays in each nostril 3-4 times daily or as directed by the Physician.
Dosage of Nasivion® Paediatric 0.025% Nose Drops for children from 1-6 years:
1-2 drops in each nostril, 2- 3 times a day or as directed by the paediatrician.
Dosage of Nasivion® ( Mini ) 0.01 % nasal drops for infants up to 1 year:
Up to the age of 4 weeks, instill 1 drop of the solution into each nostril 2-3 times per day. From the 5th week of life until the age of 1 year, instill 1-2 drops into each nostril 2-3 times per day or as directed by the physician.
Points to keep in mind which help your little one recover faster from a blocked nose:
.If your baby is under 2 years, they will have a problem blowing their noses. I, use the Nasivion® Nasal Saline Solution** or a homemade saline using one cup boiled water & 1/2 tsp iodine free salt to cleanse the nose coupled with a nasal aspirator.
.Elevate your baby’s head while sleeping.
.Give them as much liquids as possible like turmeric infused milk, warm water and warm soups, depending on their ages.
.Use a Air humidifier and if you don’t have one, keep potted plants & bowls of warm water in the baby’s room.
.Massage your baby’s chest with some warm coconut oil while lightly tapping on his chest and back, to dislodge the mucus.
.Run a hot water bath, for the baby. The steam loosens the mucus in the nose.
.Last but not the least, coo & cuddle to your baby no matter what his age may be, because the emotional love what they feel helps them recover faster.
