We had this question submitted via Facebook Messenger from a mum who has asked for advice. If you’ve been through this with your children, we’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
We also asked certified Baby & Infant Sleep Consultant Aprilla Quayle from Bubba Bedtime for her advice. Aprilla who has worked with hundreds of babies and exhausted families, providing them with professional support and advice to get their babies’ sleep back on track.
Here’s some great advice from Aprilla to ease a child’s nasty chesty cough at night …
There are lots of great things we can do to help your congested baby sleep better at night. Having them lay flat on their back will help drain any fluid and unclog their airways and sinuses.
Overnight and when they sleep, we can look to use a warm steam vaporiser. This will help prevent dryness in the air and loosen the mucus that’s stuffing up your little one’s nose. This will help them breathe more easily, feel better and sleep more soundly.
As we know being unwell can affect their sleep but once they are feeling better, we can be confident that their sleep will get back on track.
