It is better to make the most natural of ways.So, a very runny nose facilitates breastfeeding nasal lavage, instillation or injection of saline into the nostrils or seawater.Can be purchased for this purpose in the pharmacy "akvamaris" drugs "Akvalor", "Aqua Nazol" and the like.And if you want to save, you can even buy a bottle of saline solution, it will cost about 30 rubles.And dig saline into the nose with a pipette.In an extreme case, for this purpose, you can even justuse a clean vodichku with a little salt.This is a known cure for the common cold for nursing mothers - cheap and cheerful.nose Humidification helps rapid discharge of excess of it all.Breathing is restored.

If saline solutions do not help, many women decide to go to the usual means - vasoconstrictor drugs.They are not recommended for expectant mothers because it increases blood pressure, and when used in large quantities can impair placental blood supply (vasoconstriction), but such drops from the common cold to lactating mothers are acceptable.Just keep in mind that with frequent use and long-term (more than 3-5 days), they only worsen runny nose, do not allow to get rid of nasal congestion.Thus, the woman begins to increasingly use the drops, but the relief is no longer brings.In this case, the best treatment is not to win a runny nose during lactation medication, and leave the job just the body, the immune system.Of course, a different matter if there was a headache, fever - then requires internal survey ENT doctor.
Than to treat a runny nose nursing mother can be more?For example, different inhalations.But not to breathe on hot potatoes or conduct similar experiments - there is a risk of respiratory tract burns.It is best to use a pencil-inhaler.Recovery it will not speed up, but the nose is to "break" will.They can use up to 20 times per day.The main thing that was not allergic.
And whether there is a treatment for the common cold breastfeeding folk remedies that can drip into his nose?Means a lot.For example, carrot or beet juice ... Pretty powerful tool is the aloe juice.However, it is burning strongly.In general, at a cold strongly inflamed nasal mucosa, and it is better not to experiment with these tools.A good folk remedy for the common cold feeding - is eucalyptus or menthol oil.Good "breaks" the nose.Nevertheless, we can not hope that the bag will be all right after 1-2 days.This symptom usually stored 3-4 days.
short term.But is it possible to continue to breast-feed a cold with a runny nose or not to risk the health of the child?If the kid at least 6-7 months and breast milk - the only food that deprive him of power, of course, impossible.To express and feed with expressed - is also very uncomfortable.It is better to simply wash their hands often, wear a surgical mask, ventilate the room and do wet cleaning.This is an effective prevention of the spread of viral infection.
