My son's doctor's would say no, but if you feel like you need to take your baby in then do it. My doctor's already know that if my little man isn't feeling well I'm bringing him in. My doctor's told me to give him "Little noses saline drops" then after his snot becomes a bit more runny to use the bulb, ( I call it the brain sucker, I hate the thing) to suck out the snot. Do this before they eat, and throughout the day when needed. They also gave me an inhaler for him because it started to get into his chest. The poor guy was sleeping but not comfortably, now he's doing much better. I still watch him like a hawk and hardly get any sleep because I'm too busy watching him and listening to see if he's breathing ok. That young they don't understand that they can breathe through there mouth as well, so it makes me nervous. I would rather be safe than sorry though so I take him into the doctor if I feel he would benefit.
