Nasal Congestion in Babies – Causes & Remedies!

Hi guys,

Today I will be discussing about nasal congestion in babies. It’s really a difficult time when your baby suffers from it, since babies are obligatory nose breathers.

There are several causes for nasal congestion. Extremely dry air and allergy are the two main causes. When this happens, the baby develops a stuffy nose. This makes breathing through the nose harder. So, they rely on breathing with their mouth.

This in turn makes feeding harder for them. For the sucking action, the nose should be fully functional or else it really makes it difficult to feed the baby.

One thing leads to another and the end result is a sleep deprived, cranky and hungry baby. It is really painful to watch your little one crying incessantly & overall disturbed. It’s really tough to watch your kid trying hard just to breathe.

Babies don’t understand what’s happening with them, which makes them overwhelmed. The worst part?. They don’t even know how to sniff or blow their nose to clear the discomfort.

There are ways to help in this case. The main one is using a humidifier. This is if the problem occurred due to dry air. The mist will help to moisten the inner lining of the baby’s nose that is extremely sensitive and tends to dry up when exposed to dry air.

Another good tip, if you don’t have a humidifier, is to dunk a cotton cloth in hot water, squeeze out the water well, sit a slight distance away from the baby and then slightly wave that cloth in an up and down motion in the direction of the baby. This brings moisture to the immediate surrounding of the baby.

The most effective tip was given to me by my son’s pediatrician. He suggested that I use Nasivion nasal drops. These help to decongest the nose and bring much needed relief to the baby.

It comes in different strengths (0.025% & 0.05%) depending on the baby’s age. The doc prescribed him the 0.025% one. After using Nasivion, I immediately noticed that his breathing was not laboured like before. He became significantly calm and was able to feed well and thus sleep well. A happy baby results in happy parents 👪..

Check the Nasivion website for the dosage and always consult your paediatrician before using the product.

Review : Mother Sparsh 98% Water Wipes!

Hi guys!

I had done a review of several Mother Sparsh products, a while back. You can read it here in this post, if you missed it.

Among those products, one was their 98% water wipes. If you see that post, you’ll notice that these wipes were packed in a white and green pack. However, now they have changed their packaging to a sky blue one and I decided to review it.

Mother sparsh baby wipes

I have used several brands of baby wipes (including brands from abroad). However, nothing comes close to Mother Sparsh’s baby wipes. First of all, it contains 98% water. No other brand can beat that!. Then, these wipes are made from plant based fabric which is super soft and gentle on baby skin. It’s so moist too.

Other baby wipes are loaded with chemicals. But these water wipes are as gentle and mild as it can ever be. I love it and moreover, it makes me happy that my little son is taken care of in the best way possible. These wipes should be the #1 choice of every parent.

The wipes are slightly thinner than other brands but still it’s extremely moist and soft. I feel happy using it to clean my baby. The resealable packaging keeps other wipes moist too.

These wipes are as good as pure water and cotton, thus highly recommended for even newborn baby’s delicate skin.

It’s a non allergic product and is Ayurvedic too!. You guys definitely should try this out. Click the below image to purchase this product (will lead to Amazon’s Indian site). It costs only Rs 498 for a pack of 3. Each pack contains 80 wipes.

Review : Aveeno Baby Daily Moisturizing Lotion + Exclusive discount code!

Hey guys,

I would love to introduce you to a popular brand that has now launched in India.. It’s Aveeno Baby!. It’s #1 trusted brand in the US for its use of natural ingredients.

Aveeno Daily Moisture Lotion

Today, am reviewing their Daily Moisture Lotion which contains natural colloidal oatmeal blended with rich emollients to soothe baby skin.

(Ignore the remnants of a henna design on my hand 😆)

Usually lotions are packaged in bottles. However, in this case, it comes in a tube with a flip open lid. It’s packaged so because, it’s not as runny as a usual lotion would be. Instead, it has a creamy texture of medium thickness. It’s white in color & gets absorbed into the skin easily, leaving a dewy sheen to the skin. It’s non greasy and such a gentle formula. I tried it on myself first to get the first hand feel. My god!. This product quenches the thirst of dry skin. It feels like a refreshing splash of water, so hydrating and nourishing.

Aveeno baby lotion

It’s fragrance free and has only the scent of oatmeal to it, which is very mild & natural. I also love the fact that this lotion is paraben & phthalate free. It also doesn’t have any drying alcohols in it. My baby’s skin feels soft & hydrated using it ♡

Overall, I absolutely love this product and highly recommend it 👍. Please watch this brand film of Aveeno :

Here is the exclusive discount code just for you, that I promised in the post title!

I am so excited to offer you this discount code. Head over to this link to add this product to your cart (leads to popular baby products shopping site, Firstcry) & apply the code AVEENOBABYMJ to get Rs 100 off your bill!.

Review : Mama Earth Toxin free Baby products!

Hey guys,

If you aren’t aware of this Indian baby products brand, you should be. Mama Earth is Asia’s 1st Made Safe Certified Toxin Free Brand. The fact that this brand is founded and created, with a lot of love & thoughtfulness, by a couple who wanted the very best and safe options for not only their own baby but also for other little babies, made me fall in love with it.

Mama Earth follows 4 core values, as shown below in a page from their product catalogue :

Mama Earth values

The ingredients of each and every product are of high quality and free from every NO-NOs out there. You can trust these products to take care of your baby. No doubt about that!. Even though their products target the age out of 0 – 5 year olds, these products can also be used by adults!.

All products feature cute baby animals on them. It’s so adorable!. I got to try four of their products. Here are my thoughts on them :

Moisturizing Daily Lotion : This ultra moisturizing lotion is white in color & runny in consistency. It has a soothing scent as they have used Chamomile essential oil in it. Some of the other ingredients are : Shea butter, Aloevera, Calendula extract, Almond oil, Cocoa butter, Olive oil, Jojoba oil, Vitamin E, Wheatgerm oil etc. It’s really lightweight & absorbs into my son’s skin easily, leaving it smelling lovely while protecting him from dryness.

Mama Earth lotion

Gentle Cleansing Shampoo : This lavender scented, cream colored shampoo foams up on application & leaves my son’s hair soft & nourished. It’s main ingredients are : Coconut based cleansers & conditioners, Lavender essential oil, Vegetable glycerin, Xanthum gum, Aloevera extract & more. It doesn’t irritate the eyes at all.

Mama Earth shampoo

Soothing Massage Oil : I have used several massage oils from different brands but this one is just phenomenal. This lightweight, non greasy oil is a natural blend of pure almond, jojoba & olive oils. It contains both lavender & chamomile essential oils and as it’s name suggests, is very soothing to the senses. I love using this after his bath time in the evenings. Other key ingredients are : Cold pressed Sesame oil, Coconut oil & Sweet almond oil.

Mama Earth massage oil

Deeply Nourishing Body Wash : This one’s appearance & ingredients are very similar to that of the shampoo. The essential oil included in this product is that of orange & it smells absolutely wonderful. This is a multipurpose product since it can also be used on hair (instead of shampoo). I love products like these.

Mama Earth body wash

Overall, it’s pure joy to use this brand, both for myself and my son. I love that they have included essential oils for scent rather than synthetic fragrances that are harmful to the soft skin of babies. I highly recommend this brand ♥.

It goes without saying, that they are eco friendly and thus the word ‘Earth’ in their brand name. All their products are made in Himachal Pradesh. Also, I wanted to show you guys the lovely & simplistic pouch that the products came in. It’s perfect to stock baby products and to carry in my baby bag.
