    Yes, I went to the pedi on Fri and my LO has a virus. She said to give him 2 ml of children's benadryl. I have been giving it to him at night all weekend to help with his stuffy nose and cough.

    LOs nose is so stuffy she won't eat. I suck and suck, but it seems like there's no end! Should I give her some?

    Another suggestion is also to try using the saline spray before you suction their nose. My dd has had a couple of colds and this has always helped to break up her congestion without having to use medication. Saline is just salt water. I would try that before turning to benadryl if you can.
