My 9 month old has lots of mucus and can't sleep

If your baby has a cold and a lot of mucous there are many natural remedies that you can try.

- Cool mist humidifier
- Hot steam from a running shower
- Essential oils such a Breathe from doterra
- Nasal suction device (bulb sucker or electric sucker)
- Keeping your baby upright such as sleeping on your chest
- Make sure your baby is drinking plenty of fluids
- Give your baby plenty of hugs and love

According the the FDA there are no cold medications that are safe for babies.

Moms Expertise
    We found that keeping our kids upright (or close to it) as much as possible helped a ton. We would put pillows underneath their mattress in the crib so that one side was slightly elevated and it made a huge difference!
