Get On Of These!...

A couple of weeks ago my BBF Tisha was having some problems with her
new born (baby Emily, a cutie pie!) cause the baby got some bug and had
stuffy nose what caused her hard time to b reath.
Then it came to my
mind that my friend Tina who's living in Pasco,WA had the same problem
with her 5 year old princess, last Winter.
Well, unfortunately I'm too acquainted with those problems.
of my older boys got submitted in the Hospital for 2 weeks when they
were babies, with respiratory infections (a.k.a. bronchiolitis).
Always by the same time of the year (December/January) and both of them around the same age (8/9 months old).
I slept on the Hospital floor (in both cases) for 14 nights in a row, beside their beds.
So when I had Eric , I was praying that I wouldn't have to go through all that again.
Thankfully, God has blessed me with a extremely healthy child (ok!Maybe the fact that I'm still nursing him has been a great help in the process!).
Still, when Eric was born I told my hubby that we HAD to buy a new nebuliser once the old one we bought when Filipe was a baby got broken.
I can assure you that there is nothing better then this.
Whenever my kids got stuffy noses or have lots of mucous going on I use it.
We don't have to use it with medicines the whole time.
If the kids are just having an hard time breathing (with no respiratory issues involved) I use the nebuliser by putting physiological solution in it.
What it's also quite handy is sea water nasal spray.

If you have any questions about it, just feel free to ask.
I'm pretty sure that my kids medical background can be quite handy too! LOL!

When I was little my mother would have to create a tent of some kind for me to sleep in so I could breath. I guess they put a humidifier of some kind in it...

Luckily, we have not had that issue with Hunter.

Olá. Encontrei o seu blog através do Entrecard. Como ainda não tinha encontrado uma Portuguesa, não resisti em comentar.
Também tenho uma máquina de vapores destas, a minha filhota tem muitos episódios de "nariz bloqueado" e este acessório é uma optima solução.
Tenho vários blogs, quando puder faça uma visita e comente para saber que esteve lá.
Até breve. Mizé.
