    Default Congestion - allergy related? Can I do anything to help?

    Recently, Stella seems like she has some congestion in her throat, and she tries to clear it. It sounds like it's uncomfortable/annoying for her. She woke up a few times in the middle of the night last night making a clearing/making a coughing sound. Is there anything I can do to help with the congestion? Is this something that can/will get worse?
    Could it be allergy related? I think allergy testing is in Sweet Stella's near future...

    In the meet up group discussion boards one time, a lemon juice/water concoction was suggested for this. I remember the discussion being that this was a very common thing for EBs. I'm afraid I don't remember the recipe and haven't done it myself.

    Thank you @Vicaroo1000, I thought that lemon might help, I had her licking one the other day, but I don't think it was enough
    Does anyone know what the proper ratio would be?

    I've done this for Nitschke a few times.. just a squirt right in his mouth. It is a little battle when he sees the little lemon come out of the fridge, but it does help.
