    When I was pregnant with Ian, I read up and took a lot of herbal supps. Echinacea is fine to take and it will boost your immunity. I took it along with extra Vit C and it worked great.
    I personally dont use a Netti Pot, but I will make up some warm salt water and place it in a spoon. If you can get your nose up very close to it you can snort in the saline (a little at a time) and it will break up the congestion well.

    Always with me

    I'm not a mama and don't have suggestions..just wanted to say feel better!

    Is the netti pot the thing where you pour water in your nose? Not sure if I'd be able to do that!

    Thanks @laurendoodler!! Yes, that's the netti pot.

    Thankfully, at this point, I'm just about better and sleeping as well as possible again. The saline spray helped a lot and (god forbid) I get sick again, I have lots of options. Don't know what I'd do without EBN!

    yes - I would do the nasal nedi pot, or just spray the above person advised, BUT I would defiantly get 3 pillow high under your back, starting at the waist. a good 15 inches high. it will help a lot.
    If you have a question regarding dog food, or behavior! call or e-mail me anytime.
