Steam room


Steam also helps to unblock a baby's nose, but you don't want to hold them over a bowl of hot water with a towel over their head, that's too risky.

Instead, run a hot bath and close the door. Then take your little one into the steamy bathroom just for a few minutes to clear the airways.

Remember, babies can't go in very hot baths so don't put them in the bath.
