KIDS CARE & MOMS HUG
I believe, like me, every mother is concerned about her kids health. Especially, when your child is not able to sleep sound & when you find your kid cranky. Blocked nose often leads to lack of intake of proper meal or discomfort sleep. Lets discuss more about it.
SIDEFFECTS OF BLOCKED NOSE :
- Sleep Deprivation: Nasal Congestion leads to improper sleep.
- Crankiness: Your child tend to avoid food, vomit out the food which will lead to weakness & hinders mental & physical growth if not properly treated.
- The problem with kids is that they even don’t know, how to sniff or blow their nose to clear out the dirt.
- Breathing using stomach muscles
- Flared nostrils
- Quick breaths
Now what could be the Reasons of Nasal Congestion :
- It could be because of dust or using room heaters which is unhealthy. As the babies are really very sensitive and they are prone to allergies easily. The dry wind / mist makes it even more worse.
- Breast milk.It doesn’t get more natural—or easier—than this. “A drop or two in the nose can help loosen congestion,”
- Cold or flu or it could be a changing weather conditions.
It is very important to follow certain DO’s & Don’t’s
- Never wipe your child’s nose vigorously. Clean it very gently with soft cotton cloth or soft baby towel/ wet tissues.
- Never give any medicine for blocked nose without proper doctor’s consultation
- Drink a lot of fluid
- Take more rest
- Consider staying at home
- DO:Eat alkaline foods like vegetables, fruits (apples, bananas), almonds and use sweeteners like stevia.
- DONT:You should avoid things like starches, carb heavy foods, anything fried.
What could be done about it/Remedy?
- Nasal drops can be a savior in case of nasal congestion. As it helps in removing the mucus by drawing it out from baby’s sniffy nasal passages.
- You can also vaporizer the room in child’s vicinity which will fill moisture in the room.
- Try Saline (Saltwater) Drops.
- Give Love Pats: Mother’s hug is best remedy above all treatments.
- Steam room : Steam up the bathroom and sit baby on your lap. The humidity loosens any dry congestion in the nose to help it drain.
