Wen Zhern has been having very bad cases of phlegm and hasn't been sleeping very well for the past few nights. Then we noticed that he has phlegm caught in his throat. Too bad he's too young for me to teach him to hack it out.
I tried a few things... herbal medication.. water... and came up with 2 effective methods. One was to give him a very healthy patting on the back with him lying on my chest, caused him to squirt out the phelgm all over my shirt but hey.. he felt fine after that.
The other way was to let him sleep on his side so that the phelgm doesn't hold onto the wall of his troat and irritates him.
Of course.. there's a whole bunch of articles on the internet that says this is not safe at all cause the baby might roll over and suffocate himself. Then again Wen Zhern can't even roll over when he's sleeping on his back yet.
I hope I don't regret this...
