Almost 5 month old baby

My baby got a bit of snotty nose from me, I had a cold which now went into a sinus infection.

I spray sinal drops into her nose.

Is it safe to give her half a tablet of acc200 ones a day in 5ml''s of water as I heard this is safe.

She has also suffered from constipation all of a sudden, no fever with cold or constipation.

I heard luke warm boiled water with a little sugar helps? Can I give this to her everyday? She drinks the luke warm water without sugar? Does the sugar need to go in?

Also got glyserine suposteries which I used last night.

Will see if the constipation clears up.

The forum was closed when you submitted your question and only opened on 27 September. This is why there has been a delay in replying to your question. Only use saline nose drops for your baby's blocked nose.Do not give your baby any of the ACC200. This is not safe for such a young baby. Do not give your baby any extra water.I presume that your baby is formula fed. If she is constipated it would be best to consider changing her formula to Lactogen 1.
