Seven month old full of cold!

I had this same scenario with my son when he was four months old. First off, my heart goes out to you because I remember how hard that was. Just know, it’ll pass and it’ll get better. You’re strong, Mama. ❤️

Things that helped me through:

- FridaBaby cold care items! They have essential oils you can put in a bath, as well as a balm you can rub on their chest and wipes you can use to wipe their nose... all have aromas that help clear the congestion that might be a part of the coughing. The snot sucker can help clear congestion if baby has any when waking, too.

- Humidifier in the nursery or any rooms you’re spending time with baby (oils optional)! The humidity in the air can help moisten a dry throat or nostrils. This was a BIG help!

- Inclining baby as much as possible because laying flat can make cold symptoms worse. I built up one side of the crib mattress with towels underneath or you could do books under the side of the head of the crib.

It took a good 10 days for us, but every cold and immune system is different. My thoughts are with you and hoping for a quick recovery for you both!
