The 8 Best Products for a Congested Baby

The 8 Best Products for a Congested Baby - stock up before cold season hits! We want to fix it.

We want to make it all better.

But there your infant lies, looking at you with that sad “I feel like crap. Why aren’t you fixing this?” expression.

His face is sporting a yellow mustache of crusty nastiness. 

The thought of touching that nose… It takes the strongest act of sacrificial love you can muster to wipe away the snot crystals.

Friend, you’re not helpless against this cranky, congested baby.
Here are eight of the most effective tools to help you kick some serious booger booty.

I recommending stocking up ahead of time (as in now) so when the sniffles start, you don’t have to make a Walgreens run at 2 am.

What Your Baby Needs Most

These are all great congested baby products, and I hope you stockpile a few for the inevitable cold. 

But do you know what you’re baby needs most right now?  Feeling as crummy as he does?


He needs you.

He needs you to rock him.  He needs you to sing to him.  He needs you to stroke his cheek and speak softly how much you love him.  He needs your warm body, your heartbeat, your scent.

Nothing will comfort him as much as that.

You just have to figure out how he likes to be comforted.

  • For my Lauren, it was singing and holding my hand.  (She’s never been much of a cuddler.)
  • For my Elena, it was rocking and stroking her little back.
  • For my Isabella, it was the nearness of the my body in the sling.

What comforts your baby the most?

    when I was sick one time I decided to try and my kids boogie Wipes on myself, and what I learned was they burn! I thought they were great too, doing a good job removing the crusty boogers, but have now switched to Babyganics hand and face wipes. I have to say I was a little perturbed when I tried them and realized that whenever I was wiping my son’s sore nose I was causing him pain!

    • Danielle Miller says:


      Good for you for trying them on yourself! I often don’t remember to do this with my kiddos. Glad the Babyganics has worked for your family. Thanks for passing that information on.

  3. I love the boogie wipes and use them on myself, and they don’t burn at all. OTOH all the Babyganics wipes give my older son a rash. if your kid is old enough, ask your kid is they burn. Everyone’s  skin is different and something that bothers yours may be fine on his and vice versa.

  4. Thanks for your Great share, i love to use this product for my baby.
