How my baby got relief from nasal congestion

nasal congestion

It was a long day at work and I entered the house worried. Sara had a cold since yesterday and she was cranky. I saw my super-active baby was sitting on the sofa and looked dull. It was heart-breaking to see her sit silent, as she hardly sits in one place and continuously plays. I took her in my arms and checked for fever. There wasn’t a fever but she had nasal congestion along with the cold. It was causing breathing discomfort for my princess. I tried playing building blocks, the catch-a-fish game with her, but she didn’t enjoy it. Then, we moved on to her favourite activity – water colouring. But she wasn’t interested in it as well. She was frequently rubbing her nose and asking for tissues. I cleaned her many times but the rubbing continued. She was getting irritated and crying after every few minutes. It was very painful to see her red nose and eyes.

Then daddy tried to comfort Sara. He took her out for an evening walk. I went into the kitchen to cook dinner for us. Sara is a happy child and loves playing with her toys. Generally, she plays with anything available while I do my household chores, but today she was in pain. We couldn’t make our doll happy in any way. (Children get extremely cranky because of the discomfort caused due to nasal congestion.)

It was dinner time, so I served dinner, but Sara refused to eat. She hadn’t eaten anything since the day before. (She is already underweight and the illness made her lose more weight). We tried all the possible ways to make her eat but it was in vain. (Due to nasal congestion, children tend to avoid eating or find it difficult or eat. )

We thought she will get relief after taking rest, so we took her to sleep. She couldn’t sleep on the bed and that’s why we (Me and daddy) took turns to rock her on our shoulders and walk. Her nose was stuffed with mucus and she was having difficulty breathing. (Nasal congestion does not allow a child to sleep peacefully, and therefore, the kids get deprived of sleep and feel drowsy.)

Sara was waking up after every few hours and was rubbing her stuffy nose again and again. A runny nose and mucus blocked her breathing passage and she was unable to sleep. (Children between the age group of 0-1-year-old are obligatory nose breathers. When they suffer from Nasal congestion, they have difficulty breathing.)

Next day morning we visited her doctor again and after his consultancy, we got this Nasivion® Mini (Baby) Nasal Drops for a stuffy nose. It is for effective and long lasting blocked nose relief. After coming home, I used this drop for Sara and finally, a remedy that worked! After some time she started feeling relieved from her blocked nose. My baby smiled after two complete days as she could breathe. She slept peacefully in the afternoon. Nasivion Mini drops unblocked her nose and helped her to breathe normally. These nasal drops brought smiles back on our faces. A smile on the child’s face is precious for parents and we want to thanks Nasivion for this wonderful medicine, which gives relief to the children in a comfortable way. The pack has given all necessary directions for the use. Before using it, please consult your paediatrician and read all the directions given on it.
