2. Neti Pot

This is best for kids about 4 or 5 years up and older.

A neti pot flushes a mild saline solution through the sinuses, moistening the tissues and washing away mucus. You can buy saline solutions at your drug store, or simply use distilled water and mix about ½ a teaspoon of salt into 1 cup (8 ounces) of water. Your child must be willing to do this, don’t force them as this can damage their nasal passages.

Demonstrate how to do it on yourself first, and then see if your child would like to try it.
