8 wk old baby w/ chronic congestion

I have an 8 wk old baby boy who became congested about 3 days after the birth. It used to be only at night, but now is a problem during the day as well. It is mainly post-nasal, very thick and ranges from clear to white to a bit yellowish (what I've seen when I've managed to suction some out). He also had a rash for a while which diminished after a chiropractic adjustment. He spits up some as well; sometimes thick and curdled with mucus in it. I've also noticed a lump about 2 inches behind his ear (left is much more pronounced than rt side)--I'm told this could be a sinus gland? He also has had some frothy greenish diapers which I understand to be a result of my over-abundant milk supply (not getting enough hindmilk) but I thought I would mention anyway. Can't think of anything else...

Oh, except that he is exclusively breastfed.

Thanks for any info!

Dear aquamama,
I studied your case.I advise you to give Merc.Sol.30 one dose daily for 1 week.Take 4 drops in 30ml drinking water and give it to him.

Contact me after 1 week.

Dr. Sharma,

Thank you for reviewing the case. Is there any other way to dose? He's never had a bottle. Can I do a couple of droppers full of water mixed with the tincture? Or just pellets? Please advise.

Dear Aquqmqmq,

Do not give mother tincture.Please give Merc Sol 30.Disolve 4-6 pellets in 30 ml water n give it with dropper.

ok...just to clarify...

Do I use the 30 ml for the entire week, a little at a time, or is it 30 ml each day? Sorry for the confusion--just want to make sure I understand correctly.

Thanks so much again for your help. :)

Dear Aquamama,

Well I asked 30 just to make sure child had taken medicine.If he takes 10ml of medicine that is sufficient.
No need to give complete 30ml in one day.

With best wishes.

Great--I will let you know how it goes. I've placed an order so hopefully I'll have the remedy sometime this week.
