Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Three words: Breathe Right Strips!
I loved my Neti Pot - it really cleared out my sinuses and even helped with my seasonal allergies.  It also helps to keep your nasal passages moist, so a saline nasal spray a few times a day is a good idea.  Both of these methods are medicine-free, so you don't have to worry about them harming the baby.  (I'd never tried the Breathe Right Strips, though - those might work well, too.)
