The normal saline is like those eye drop sized bottled. Just squeeze it into the nostril will do everyday, be it 1 time etc. Get the picture? Otherwise for the first time, you can go to any GP clinic & buy from them. Anyway this is a very cheap remedy.

Whenever my ger seeing my mouth nearing her, she SCREAM!!! Think I look like a shark!!! Heehee! But it really soothes her when the muscus cleared..
I am still thinking whether to bring dear son to doc or not coz his cough n running nose seem to get worse but worry doc wont give med bcoz he still young then like that waste $$ see doc
chinese medicine i dont really dare to try especially my dear son so young now *paiseh abit paranoid coz i believe in it better to be sorry than things happened.
Loves, your baby is indeed to young for any meds. How is he feeling now?
What I did when my son was too young for any meds is I gave him Bao Yin Dan from Eu Yan Sang. just a little bit added to his milk.
something comes to my mind. my neice was having running nose & coughs very frequently when she was 2mth or 3mth old. my sis bought her to see pediatrician at Thomson Medical Center. realise she has has some allergies. so she recommend to change her formula milk to nestle nan with ha & cetaphil for her sensitive skin. which indeed improve her condition by lot. but her flu & cough will still come back when my sis was trying to switch her back to friso.
loves, mayb bring your baby to see an other pediatrician?

I will not advise changing milk powder as yet.
Loves, why dont you bring your son to the pediatrician again? Cld it be dust? Also, these few days weather not too good.
Usually flu will last about 3-5 days, cough slightly longer.
Do a little foot rub, esp the toes area and under.. these are the reflex zone for head, eyes, nose..
Hope you little one get well soon.
He got the cough n running nose frm me coz i was sick aso, ya tomorrow bringing dear son to another pediatrician, Kandang Kerbau Hospital nose drop doesnt work at all. that oblas oil help unblock nose awhile nia but after that come back...dont dare put too near dear son coz worry too "hot" for him.
i seen doc on last sunday already
Yalor i am so sick still need to overnite take care of my dear son w/o sleep yet when i pass germs to dear son which dear son pass to his daddy then dear husband aso never help me take care. He simply take his medicine n go sleep which left me taking care of dear son all alone
Taking care of sick baby is really no joke. My dear husband is not in SG, during this time, my son also fell sick (fever, running/block nose, cough) and I took care of him until I fell sick too. Bo pian.. I didn't go to work for almost a week. Can't even sleep at night cos my son kept waking up. Really torturing man!
Loves, you gotta take care yourself. Try to let your son sip some warm water frequently as it helps to wash down the blockages and pass out in his stool.
