RE: Post: 800 - Nose sound conjested when feeding

Good day

Thank you for the response. Based on the analysis done, hyperthatically speaking if the noise from my babies nose is due to the fact that some milk was getting into her nose because of her fact that she was lying down when feeding. What can I do to clear her up? What are the consequencies or short term &  long term, effects if this does not clear up.

Provided that your baby sleeps well and feeds well [besides her noisy breathing] there should be no problems. If she snores when she sleeps and appears to hold her breath for a few seconds while sleeping she should be seen by a paediatrician again. This time she must be carefully tested for allergies.In the meantime you need to only use saline nose drops twice daily to keep her nose as clear as possible.
