Message length 300 characters recommended

We usually held our babies upright on our chests or propped up on our tummies if we were in bed. We've put them in their car seats in the bathroom with the shower running. I have even slept in the recliner so I could hold baby up on my shoulder or chest so they could breathe better.

I know others have used Vick's rub or humidifiers, we didn't use the rub but used a humidifier a couple of times and that's about it.

Now that we know about essential oils, we use R.C., Breathe Again, Peppermint, Raven and Thieves.
