Jake got quite a snotty cold when he was about 4 months old, I put a folded blanket under one end of his matress so his head was ellivated- Like mummy suggested in her post :o)
I also invested in some children's Olbas Oil. I put 2 drops on a muslin cloth and tied it securely to the bars on his cot meaning he got the benefit of the vapours to unblock his nose during the night. It did help him to sleep better, so perhaps give it a try?!!
I hope she gets better soon :o)
Another tip if she's snotty during night feeds- bottle or breastfed you can use the muslin with Olbas oil again by just having it on your chest so as she feeds she can clear her nose and breathe easier.
I used vicks vapour rub on my chest during the worst days with Jake as he was breastfed. Works wonders- also meant my nose was clear too!!
