My 6month old has had a runny nose and slight temp over the last 24hrs. She has also been incredibly unsettled (understandable considering the temp and nose) I had put it down to teething as I am pretty sure she has another 2 teeth coming through.
Tonight after I finally got her to bed, she woke up crying at about 12.30am I went to check on her and she was still asleep but obviously congested and not breathing well. I went to find the vapouriser and when I came back in the room she was awake and choking on the mucus, (This happened in hosipital when she was 3days old aswell) Her eyes were rolled back in her head and everything. After I got her breathing properly again and cleared as much as I could out of her chest I gave her some Demazin (Chemist Brand) put the vapouriser on and put her back in bed (she didn't want cuddles at all, was happier to lie in bed with her blankie. She lied there breathing slowly (as in taking slow deep breaths) and drifted off to sleep.
Then 30mins ago, the same thing woke up to her crying and when I got to the room she was really congested again and felt very hot. I went and got the thermometer and took temp it was 37.5, so picked her up and tried to clear her throat but no success, so went and got some panadol to try and bring her temp down and then she gagged on it started choking again, so cleared her throat ou and tried to clear her chest out (get her to cough it up whilst over my lap) once she had clamed down and was breathing a little better i tried the panadol again but she started gagging again, so I have left it.
But now I really don't know what to do with her, I feel safer having her in her cot rather than with me as we have a breathing monitor. But if this keeps happening what do I do, as I can't just keep getting up to her choking through the night..... Any advice.... And what temp do i start to worry at....
Thanks & Cheers
