Baby Congestion Natural Remedies

Nasal congestion in babies interferes with sleeping and feeding, when nasal pathways are blocked. Congestion comes when a nursing mother may have a diet too rich in dairy products or there is too much stress from lack of sleep which affects the quality of mother’s milk. The baby may have allergies to the formula.

For baby congestion, most healthcare professionals recommend sucking out the mucus from the nose or using a decongestant if the child is old enough. From the natural perspective, we should look first at the mother’s diet, and help the mother and child to normalize mucus secretions to reduce congestion. Clearing the nose is helpful.

A humidifier with a few drops eucalyptus oil in the water may be helpful at night. It is good symptomatic relief.

Nursing mothers need to pay attention to their diet; also avoid tobacco, alcohol, caffeine, coffee, and soda.

If baby is on formula, you may need to change it.

 

Herbs for Baby Congestion

Herbs are plants valued for their specific strengthening/ tonifying properties.

Use a glycerin extract as it contains no alcohol and are safer.

Elecampane – use with mother and a drop or two for the baby a few times a day. It is one of the best nasal decongestants I have used.

Osha – respiratory issues and be used if elecampane isn’t effective

Echinacea – useful especially for mom and will be helpful to the child through the mother’s milk.

Ginger – warming, improves digestion and congestion. Use like elecampane.


Cell Salts to Help with Baby Conestion

To make a cell salt solution, put up to 10 tablets of each cell salt in a 16- to 24-ounce bottle; fill with water and swirl to dissolve tablets. Sip throughout the day.

#3 Calc sulph 6X – digestive problems, yellow discharges
#9 Nat mur 6X – congestion, clear discharges

Baby Congestion Homeopathic Remedies

Homeopathic remedies are non-toxic natural medicines safe for everyone including infants and pregnant or nursing women. You may use 6X, 30X, 6C or 30C potencies.

Calcarea carb (#1 Homeopathic for baby congestion) – the first remedy for all babies, and especially the chubby ones.

Kali bich – when there is green and yellow thick gooey and sticky mucus.

Kali carb – chronic mucus, ulceration of the nose; stuffy in warm rooms; can have blood in mucus; smelly thin yellow-green discharges.
