Health Tip: Easing Baby's Nasal Congestion

Use a cool-mist humidifier

(HealthDay News) -- While the common cold is rarely serious, the American Academy of Pediatrics says young children may have as many as eight to 10 colds in their first two years.

The group offers these tips to help ease baby's nasal congestion from a cold:

  • Use a saline nasal spray or drops.
  • Run a cool-mist humidifier in baby's room.
  • Don't use a steam or hot-water humidifier, which could lead to burns.
  • Make sure any humidifier is placed out of baby's reach.
