I would say to just keep offering little and often, other than saline have you tried snufflebabe on her chest? or one of the colour room plug ins for nighttime? Both usually do the trick for O x

My little one was the same plus he was teething. He didn't eat or have much milk for 8 days. Have you tried baby olbas oil and a nose sucker? The nose sucker helps get all the snot out so she might feel less congested and therefore interested in milk?

give this a go a couple of sprays before a feed should clear her nose long enough for her to have her milk, i remember my little one being like this its heartbreaking

A is full of cold at the moment and is the same with her milk. I'm currently putting snufflebabe on her chest, using the calpol saline spray before feeds and also the nosey nuzzle wipes to wipe her nose with, her crib is raised anyway because of her reflux but that can help with colds too. We've got the calpol plug in on in her room and also I've an oil burner on in the living room with some infant olbas oil in it. I would also second little and often with feeds. A's throat is sore and red so we've been giving calpol to help with that too. If feasible, maybe bundle her up warm and take her for a walk as the fresh air might help? Hope she's better soon x

Make sure you put her in the bathroom whenever you shower and make it a hot steamy one! Always helped my boy. And snufflebabe is really good. Hope she's better soon x
