It is very common for babies to have a stuffy nose. The Nasal cavity is not only a space that is used for passage of air, but it is also important part of system that allows us to breath, speak and taste. All of these functions depend on proper breathing. At the very entrance to nasal cavity, there are follicles which are stopping bigger particles and inner tissue has a task to filter the air. By passing through this space, air is heated at the temperature of 31 to 37 degrees. It isn’t hard to imagine that any disturbance to this system can lead to discomfort and illness.
Babies are very sensitive after birth. This means that they will catch a cold more than once and it will be very hard to treat this condition because we are not able to use standard medicine. Pharmacists from You! Drugstore recommends that you use solution in order to clear the airwaves. Various products can help you with this. One of them is hydraSense. This solution is based on 100 % natural sea water. It is well known that sea water is one of the best ways to clear sinuses due to its rich mineral properties. When you are using hydraSense, make sure to turn baby sideways and in nostril, which is above, put a few drops of solution. After a few minutes (when drops reach throat), baby is turned on the other side and the same procedure is repeated. If necessary, rest of mucus can be taken out by sucking it with special pumps that can be found in almost any online pharmacy. HydraSense is not a medication in its original sense. In fact, it is a solution and because of it, it can be used numerous times, as long as baby needs it. The most important thing is that the nose is constantly being rinsed so that there is no stuffiness or breathing issues.
Children of all ages have this problem and it is caused by secretion within the nose as a response to various stimuli. Although bigger children are able to counter symptoms of cold by spitting out mucus or blowing their nose, babies are completely helpless. Usually, stuffiness is caused by dry air which is present in the room. This is why doctors always recommend that the room has fresh air by leaving windows open. Humidifiers are also a valid solution to this problem. However, a stuffy nose can also be caused by other things such as cold, bacteria, allergies etc.
It is very common for babies to catch a cold. During the first years, it is expected that a baby will suffer from common cold 6 to 8 times. Good thing about every virus is that baby is developing its immune system with every subsequent disease. As previously mentioned, during first days of cold, appetite is often reduced; baby is restless, nervous and sometimes even scared. A Cold is often followed with temperature and after a few days, the nose starts running. Important thing for parents is not to panic and visit the doctor as soon as possible.
