Re: Why is she so stuffy?

My pedi is very concerned about our DD's snoring that she referred us to a ENT (ear nose and throat doctor) which we have to set up an appt for.

I would check to see about going to one of them.

Added video of her breathing. She's like that all the time.

She is so cute

I'm not sure mama. My DS has had a lot of snoring, stuffiness and rough breathing since birth. When he was younger he sounded a lot like that. Now that he is older, he doesn't sound quite as bad

Re: Why is she so stuffy? ADDED VIDEO/AUDIO

I have a hard time with videos on here, so haven't listened. The first thing I thought of, though, was a dairy allergy (or at least a sensitivity) because both of my children with milk issues were always stuffy in the way you describe. If you have dairy in your diet, I would recommend taking it out. If the dairy is causing a problem, you should notice a difference in about a week. Not that it will be gone, but it should be lessened enough that you can tell.

Hmm, would it still be a milk allergy if she has no other symptoms? No gassiness, fussiness, or even spitting up?

It probably wouldn't be a milk allergy, but could be a sensitivity. My son was really fussy or gassy, and didn't spit up much at all, but is sensitive to milk. Well, to pasteurized milk. My youngest daughter, however, was always spitting up, but we think it is just a difference in the severity of the sensitivity.

My DD was like that. If you are still worried, ask to be refered to an ENT just to be sure, but my DD sounded the same and it slowly got better and better until it was gone by 6 months or so.

Highly unlikely. Usually if there is only one symptom, it's gas/upset tummy. I think in more sensitive kiddos is when the ezcema/congestion/poo troubles start to show up.

to you. I hope it clears up soon! Definitely try saline drops and then an aspirator to help loosen it up.

Have you considered taking her to the chiropractor? A lady I know on another board took her little one to one when he was congested, and that helped to move things along. Her little one also has reflux and this really helps him. It couldn't hurt to try, it's all natural and doesn't seem to hurt them. Just wanted to throw that suggestion out there,mama! Good luck, she is adorable!
