  • Some babies take longer than others. I had the same problem with my youngest but it only last about the first 2 or 3 months. What I found that helped was to just let the hot shower run and sit in the bathroom with him. Once you start to break a sweat is long enough. They also make baby vics now that I found worked wonders.

  • omg! I have the same problem with my 3 week old baby. His nose is constantly congested. I used the saline and the aspirator, which helps, but he cries horribly afterward. I tried massaging his nose bridge a little that helps for a little bit. I'm hoping it would go away soon. Let me know what happens to your baby.
