My 7 month old seems to have caught the sniffles from my toddler. Any tips to help him through his first cold?

  • The first cold is awful especially when they’re little. I remember laying awake listening to my little ones snuffle and cough their way through the nights.



  • If is in pain or has a fever, Panadol can help but maybe check with your doctor first.



  • I always used saline nose drops to keep the nose clear for drinking and breathing. I also smeared eucalyptus balm on the sole of the feet during the night and depending how severe it was I used also a steam vaporizer in the room at night.
