Tips for relieving babies chest congestion
Charlie was really congested when he was born and for the next month or so. At his doc appt I asked about it and the pediatrician said that it's totally normal. Babies are learning how to use their parts and learning to breathe outside the womb is a big one. He recommended a cool mist humidifier in the room and that did help a little, but really all that changed it was time. After about 6 weeks old it all cleared up.
Avery got sick and really congested around 6 months old and we would take her in the shower with us to clear it up.
