Do's and Don'ts for baby's dry nose

From American Baby Magazine, December 2009 Edition

Use infant Saline drops and bulb aspirator to clean out the nose and keep nasal passages moist.
Add Moisture to baby's room with a cool mist humidifier. Scrub it out and change the water at least once weekly.
For children 1 and up, dab fragrance free lotion on dry skin around nostrils.

Forget to squeeze the air out of the aspirator before using it.
Use a hot water vaporizer as it can scald if it tips over.
Use petroleum jelly inside nostrils. If inhaled, it can be irritating to a child's lungs.
