No one in the family is happy when a baby has a cold, especially when it affects night time sleep. Since cold medicines are not recommended for little ones under two, what natural alternatives do you have? There are quite a few great remedies.

Many colds will go away without much help, on their own. It is the body flushing out, and it can be useful to let it take its course. During colds, babies need extra quiet time and/or sleep. This will be the best remedy to help her recover. If it gets to be too much for her, because she is not sleeping, is not eating enough, or is having trouble breathing, then try the methods below.

First, to help clear her stuffy nose, use a bulb syringe to suck out what you can. Since she cannot blow her nose, this will clear some of it out. After, put just a few drops of an infant saline solution in her nose. This will help clear the sinuses farther up.

Make sure she gets plenty of fluid. If you are breastfeeding, this will help her immune system, as well as help her get the fluids she needs. If she is bottle fed, make sure she is getting the same amount of milk as usual. If she is on some solids, it is okay to allow her to go back to having more milk than solids. The milk may help her to recover.

There are some effective, yet easy on the system homeopathic remedies for colds. These are so gentle, they are safe for babies. Check out your health food store for their selection. Since many babies get stuffy or runny noses when they teethe, it is also a great idea to get some homeopathic tablets to help with teething as well. I have seen many babies calm down soon after taking a few of these.

It is helpful to have enough moisture in the air in her room and your home. We all feel better and breathe better when there is enough moisture in the air. Optimal humidity is 30-45%.
