Happy Nose, Happy Baby and a very Happy Mom

As a parent, it is obvious to set out the highest hopes and expectations out of the child. When a child is diagnosed with even a minor health issue, these aspirations are then altered. While one parent might be hoping to see the child graduate from a big University, years down the line another is praying that the child can live a pain free and a long healthy life. I believe the hardest part about being a parent is watching the little baby go through something really tough and not being able to fix it for them.. This indeed, is a very miserable feeling.

Not being able to play like other babies or sleep peacefully was the issue we were dealing with my niece and all this just because of her blocked nose.

This case of rhinitis stopped the smiles and playful energy of my niece and we immediately wanted some solution that could tackle this issue with kid gloves: hard on the problem and easy on the patient.

🔹Sleep deprivation – Yes, this was a major issue which we were unable to resolve as nasal congestion was not allowing her to sleep peacefully resulting in her getting deprived of sleep and feeling drowsy all the time.

🔹Crankiness – A child can get extremely cranky because of the discomfort caused due to nasal congestion.

🔹Difficulty in eating/avoid eating – Due to nasal congestion, she was avoiding food as she was finding it extremely difficult to eat with a blocked nose.

🔹Obligatory nose breathers – Do you know, children between the age group of 0 – 1-year-olds are obligatory nose breathers and if they happen to suffer from Nasal congestion, they have difficulty in breathing.

Thankfully, we were introduced to Nasivion® Child Nose Drops by a family friend. Continue reading “Happy Nose, Happy Baby and a very Happy Mom”
