A congested baby is a miserable baby and there are few things a parent can do but give them the love to get through it.
They’re too young to blow their nose and there aren’t many decongestants approved for babies so what are the options?
Smart mama Brianna Whedbee decided to go down the natural remedy route and after astonishing results she shared her pearls of wisdom on Facebook. Now the post been shared more than 20,000 times by fellow moms and dads who are “snot” ignoring these amazing results.
Although you may not appreciate the images, they do speak for themselves.
Brianna decided to give her congested little boy a herbal bath using essential oils.
Nasal decongestant herbal bath. All of his mucus started coming out! Love it 💙
She said: “Soon all his mucus started coming out.”
Brianna was inundated with questions of how she did it, so further down the post she said she used a few drops each of peppermint oil and eucalyptus oil.
She added the drops to a warm bath and kept the door closed to trap in the steam.
She also tossed in “less than a handful each” of peppermint leaves, mullen flowers, elder flowers, and chamomile.
