stuffy nose

my 6 week old little girl has had a stuffy nose for weeks now. I've ben doing the saline solution and using a q-tip (the bubble aspirator does not work). I don't htink she has a cold because other then the stuffy nose she is fine. Any ideas on how to get rid of the stuffy nose?

  • try a vaporizer or a humidifier. something in the air is trying her nostrils and sinus cavities. if her nose starts bleeding don't be alarmed.

  • Try a vaporizer, elevate her head to make breathing easier. It sounds like it may be allergies. At the next visit ask the doctor.

  • I would also recommend a vaporizer. Try not to use the saline drops too much. Overuse can actually start to make the nose stuffy.
