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.

    Newborns can be noisy little critters too because of their breathing. My babies noises would wake me up!
