When I had my last baby, she was always suffering from some serious congestion and upper respiratory problems, and since she was such a small infant there was really nothing that they could give her but they recommended steam from the shower and some vapor rub. I found these at the store and thought that they would be worth giving a try to help her be able to breath more comfortably and then maybe we would both be able to get some much needed sleep. I like to put these in the shower and turn the water as hot as possible and close the door, then I would sit with her on my lap and we would just inhale all of the steam that was made. This quickly helped her and became a nightly ritual until she was feeling better. These are very hard for me to find now and I have to order them offline, but now I love to use them for my whole family. I was really sick and these helped me to be able to breath after a week of feeling bad and being on breathing treatments and using an inhaler. They help clear up congestion and work great when you don't want to use medicine or medicine is not working for you.
