  • Normally I would suggest saline, but if she won't let you put anything near her nose it won't work. You can try turning on the shower to a very hot temperature and get the bathroom nice and steamy and sit in there for a few, it should help loosen it up and get it out.

  • Try a humidifier, or as the above pp said to try to loosen it up. They do have baby nose drops. But get the ones without alcohol in them. You can also put a little vaseline on the nose if it looks like it's getting dry or cracked from the runny nose. Or wait until nap time. I had to do that with my DD.

  • Tummy time always works for my 7 month old. She will take a few did breaths and blow out real hard. Boogies and snot just come flying out.
