Baby with blocked nose

    My baby at 5+ weeks is having a blocked nose now. He's still drinking well at 100 - 120ml of EBM at 3hr intervals. For convenience sake, I brought him down to visit the GP and he say as long as the baby is drinking milk, he's fine. He'd given me a bottle of nose drop but advise to apply only sparingly and if necessary.

    Any mummies out there encounter the same situation and would like to share? I feel so heartpain when I see my baby getting irritated with the blocking nose. :"( I wonder when will the blocked nose go away ...

    You can check with Guardian Pharmacy...there's a external drop that you dip on a handkerchief & put near your bb so that can help clear his nose.

    You have bring your bb to see pd dr ong eng kweow at tmc. He is good in this area.

    Dun drag too long if condition is worse your bb might need more time to recover. As my #1 gal used to have problem like your bb and ended she had lung infection during 9months

    have u tried (clarinase24Hr), can get in all pharmacies.. now got haze, and nose stuck as well, taken dat and recover within a day.
    My baby occasionally have block nose/running nose as well, I use a nose sucker to suck the mucus out and it helps to relief her block nose alot. remember to buy ones dat can be repeatlly press to suck the mucus rather then some cheap ones that can one press once before inserting it into the nose the mucus and have to pull out again before u press and inserting into the nose to suck again.

    One of the PDs gave our then 2 month daughter a decongestant nose drop (I think its Illidium) which we were not supposed to use it consecutively for more than 2-3 days.

    We were recommended to use saline by the pharmacist at Guardian which is safer for the infant and does not contain any drugs without the restriction of 2-3 days consecutive use.

    We found that the Sterimar "Physiological sea water microspray" very effective for our daughter. It unblocks the nose and she sneezes out the dirt in her nostrils after the use all the time.

    Hi Lin,
    I am not trying to do any marketing here. But I found one of the MLM product(eExcel from the US) is useful to relieve nose sensitive. It has quite a full range of products, but this product called "Noco" is helpful to tackle nose problem.

    (Use IE browser)

    It did help to relieve my boy(2yr old now) blocked nose problem. Hope this provides an option to you.

    If you need more info. can contact me at jjiequn@yahoo.com

    My kids keep on getting runny nose, cough and phelgm. Wonder if there's any solution to avoid this?

    I would suggest to see TCM for baby at Kembangan (Yu Gou clinic). It is really effective and for baby less than 1 year old, they only do 'Tui na', no medicine.

    The clinic is crowded when doctor Xu is on duty and you need to take Q# in advance if you don't to wait.

    Hi Jie Qun

    Do you have the number for the Yu Gou clinic?

    Hi Sunflower,

    The numberis 64474761. I tried for my bb and find not really working but maybe cause TCM takes sometimes ba. There is one yisi by the name of Huang Yi Shi who does the tui na herself; tried to asked for her. They do tui na and give you a medicine bag to strap to your bb belly button area.

    Hope it helps.

    My 4mo boy just got admitted & discharged after 5 days of hospitalization. All because of his blocked nose & coughing. What we realized later was that it’s a virus infection called RSV. According to the doctor, it is very bad for small kids as their nasal passage is very small thus inability to breathe is a headache. N the worse part is that it’s contagious. However, we only got to know of this contagious fact after 4 days in hospital, I am so sorry to the other Japanese mummy who was opposite our bed with her infant twin.

    To-date after a week has passed from discharge date, my son still hasn’t fully recover from his runny nose & cough. I so feel like bringing him back to the NUH again but am so afraid they will admit him again.

    Earlier, pd prescribed Pulmicort to use on nebulizer for our son but we never got to use cos baby got hospitalized. If any mummy is interested, do pm me.
