Get Rid of Baby Snot With These Tricks!

If you notice your baby showing symptoms of a cold, such as snot, that's normal. Pediatricians believe that children often catch colds because viral infections are easily transmitted through the nose and children are more susceptible to these types of infections. Because babies don't yet know how to breathe through their mouths, a stuffy nose can cause breathing difficulties. You can help your baby by using decongestants such as lukewarm salt water rinses through nasal irrigation to help expel the retained mucus easily and improve your child's breathing, thereby relieving the child's discomfort.

To easily remove the mucus, you can sit the baby down or lay them face down so you can easily rinse their nose. It is important that you do a separate irrigation for each nostril. A quantity of 1.0 to 1.5 ml of saline solution is recommended for this purpose, especially for babies. It is important that the solution is at room temperature so that there is no unpleasant irritation of the nasal mucosa. This process can be repeated as many times as needed and there are no contraindications or adverse effects from use.

It is not recommended to use nasal aspirators because, according to pediatricians, these devices cause problems with the ears and can trigger an ear infection, since during suction, the mucus can enter the canal, which is located in the middle of the ear and throat and act as a tube designated by Eustaquio and can thus cause complications.

Steam baths are a great way to soften mucus or prevent it from hardening. Inhaling vapor helps with mucus retrieval and expulsion. It is also important to keep the baby adequately watered as this will encourage mucus flow and circulation. Breast milk is also very helpful here, as the warmth of the breast will help the baby sweat and the mucus come out.
