My 4 month old has a stuffy nose. What can I do?

I tried saline drops and the bulb syringe, baby rub, a cool mist humidifier, and a steamy shower. Nothing works!

  • Just keep doing what works the best hun. Probably gonna have to sleep with the baby to help keep his/her head elevated for better breathing too. I hate colds...good luck!

  • When my daughter gets a stuffy nose I put on the humidifier and I know this sounds weird but I put Vicks baby rub on her feet and then put socks on her and on her back. Nose sucker is great to.

  • I took him to the doctor yesterday and he said it's probably allergies. He gave me an nebulizer machine and albuterol. Hope it works. Thanks for all your answers!!!
