21A Squished Little Nose

Not only can your wee one's nose get a little squished during delivery, which will also straighten out, but it can also make some pretty scary noises that might freak a new mama out.

Newborns typically breathe through their noses, which are still very narrow and don't allow for much to

get through. Sometimes, new babies have small amounts of mucus in their noses, which makes it sound like they are having difficulty breathing due to congestion.

In most cases, they don't really have a cold like it sounds. Most doctors will suggest using a syringe to help reduce the amount of mucus in the baby's nose.
