  • a bulb sucker thingie. saline drops, but not after a meal cause he will throw up. some swear by vicks on their feet. and the best i find is a cool mist humidifier in their room.

  • Saline mist...Steam up the bathroom with the shower and repeat as necessary. A humidifier too!

  • Do you have a humidifier? Or try sitting in your bathroom with the shower running on hot water. The steam can help open up his nostrils. Hope that helps the guy

  • They sell this over the counter stuff called "LITTLE NOSES"..its a nasal solution for babies and it comes with a really good nose suction too. You just squirt a little of the solution up their nose, wait a few seconds and then start suctioning it out. It works really good. Most places like Walgreens and CVS,Walmart has it.
    Hope this helps! :)

  • The vicks on the feet DOES work but make sure for one that little to mix it with vaseline about half and half.

  • Nothing up the nose,too little. Put a humidifier in the babys bedroom. That is what doctors recommend. If u use the stuff on the feet,another thing u need to cover the feet with something the baby can't pull off.
