Welcome!

I hate it when the little ones get colds, always found it hard to feed then.

I found feeding with LO faced down (me lying back) would help drain the nose unlike when they are lying in a normal position in a craddle.

Also breastmilk up the nose can help too, its works like saline drops and should clear it a little so you can nurse

I have been using saline drops in combination with a sucker thing designed to use up there nose. Keira hates it being done but it does work!
