And my Baby sleeps peacefully again!!

‘Sleeping’ and ‘Sleeping peacefully’ are two different things.

While sleeping is considered essential for recharging our body, ‘Sleeping peacefully’ recharges our mind. And all this ‘gyan’ falls true for all of us adults and even for our cute little kids.

Have you ever noticed that the morning when you get up without a proper, good night’s sleep, you tend to feel exhausted, lethargic, and less interested in activities around? But since we are adults, we can cope up with these. Imagine what happens to infants and young kids, these tiny souls are not even able to express their discomfort.

Something like this happened with us too.

Last week, my little one was under the weather with bad nasal congestion. He showed no interest in playing along with his favourite trucks and was cranky all the time. Moreover, he did not take his feed properly, or I must say, wasn’t interested in eating at all, and hence, wasn’t able to sleep well at night due to all the discomfort. Babies, being obligatory nose breathers, get even more restless due to a blocked nose. And the mother in me was worried due to all this, and anticipating the next day would be even more difficult with an irritable, exhausted, drowsy, clingy baby.

I could not see my ‘little me’ suffering like this. I am sure no Mom can; we have this different emotional bond you know!

Every moment of his pain and suffering was even more painful to me. And every second of him being irritable due to the discomfort was adding more to mine.

And then one of my friends suggested trying nasal decongestant for fast relief. So, I quickly consulted a doctor and went ahead and tried a nasal decongestant, like Nasivion Mini (Baby) Nose Drops. This is a nasal decongestant in an easy drop form, specially designed for babies’ little button-like nose. The active ingredient in this is in a lower concentration than for adults, making it suitable for babies. They have drops available in two strengths, for children, it is Nasivion Pediatric (Child) Nose drops, 0.025% whereas Nasivion (Mini) Baby Nose Drops 0.01% for babies less than one year. So I was sure that won’t be ‘too much’ for my little one.

I quickly cleaned his nose, and in lying down posture, tilted his head back on my lap to ensure that the drops go inside the nose properly. Then squeezed the dropper and instilled 2 drops in each nostril with the inverted dropper which came along with it. It was suggested to use it 2-3 times a day. I could observe that Tuggu was a little better after the first dose and was able to breathe easily. #HappyNoseHappyMom

He played with me for some time, enjoyed his free play too with his cars and trucks.

And guess what? He even ate his ‘dal rice,’ 😊 didn’t finish it though. But still, it was such a delightful sight watching him monkeying around. Play, jump, eat, poop- repeat until he was happily tired to snooze off for the day and that’s how my Baby slept peacefully again!!

Well, that’s my story of the day, what’s yours? Do let me know in the comments below how you help your baby to sleep well.

Disclaimer: Please note that I am not an expert in this field, this is purely based on my experience and story. Do not consider this blog post as a replacement for a doctor’s consultation; it is not a prescription of treatment for babies having blocked or stuffy nose. A Nasal Saline Solution, like Nasivion, is the first line of treatment as it is safe and can be used by anyone. But if the problem is aggravated, then after consulting the doctor, one can opt for Nasivion (Mini) Baby Nose Drops or Nasivion Pediatric (Child) Nose drops depending on the age of the child.
