7 Tips To Help A Child With A Stuffy Nose

Being sick is no fun, but caring for a sick child is even worse. No parent likes to see their child miserable, and while stuffy noses are part of life it is hard for little ones to understand.

The good news is that stuffy noses generally go away on their own in a few days, but in the mean time there are some things you can do to help your tot’s stuffy nose. Thanks to Little Remedies for sponsoring these tips for stuffy nose relief. 

How To Help A Child With A Stuffy Nose

Soften the blow – If your little one is blowing and blowing, make sure they have super soft tissues to comfort their little noses. We all know how quickly noses can become chapped from too much nose blowing, so load up with the softest tissues you can find. 

Mom Hack – Tired of picking up dirty tissues? Use a couple of rubber bands to attach an empty box of tissues to a full box. Instant portable trash can for the dirty tissues.

Steam it up – Breathing moist air can help soothe irritated noses and loosen congestion in the nose and lungs. As soon as stuffy noses start, use a cool mist vaporizer or a humidifier in the bedroom at night. A hot shower, or steaming up a bathroom, can also help, but keeping the steam going all night is the best way to relieve stuffy noses. 

Little Remedies Saline Spray – For even more moisture in little noses try Little Remedies Saline Drops. Saline drops are a non-medicated way to get relief from stuffy (and crusty) noses due to allergies, colds and more. Little Remedies Saline drops are alcohol free and will not sting or burn little noses. Plus the saline drops work on infant noses all the way through adult noses. So go ahead and treat everyone’s stuffy noses with Little Remedies Saline Drops.

Elevate the head – Stuffy noses always seem to get worse at night. If your little one is having an especially hard time breathing at night, consider elevating the head either by propping up the crib or placing rolled towels under the pillow of older children. 

Apply suction – Every parent is familiar with the suction technique and while most babes aren’t a fan, it works. Little Remedies Stuffy Nose Kit comes with Saline Spray and a Nasal Aspirator so parents have both tools on hand. First spray little noses to moisten and loosen, and then suction out the gunk. While there may be resistance, it works.

Keep them comfortable – Stuffy noses are frequently accompanied by other miserable symptoms like a small fever or generally not feeling well. If your child has a fever or other symptoms that are making them uncomfortable, consider using a pain reliever to make them more comfortable. It won’t fix the stuffy nose, but if one symptom feels better the stuffy nose might become more bearable. 

Lots of TLC – Even after doing everything you can to help, your little one might still be miserable with a stuffy nose. After you have done everything above to help relieve symptoms, it is time for an extra dose of tender loving care. Perhaps some extra snuggles on the couch or some extra TV time. 

Stuffy noses can start at any time, so be sure that you are well stocked with everything you need to relieve your child’s stuffy nose including Little Remedies Saline Drops or Little Remedies Stuffy Nose Kit on hand.
