My 8 week old son has some huge boogers form when he sleeps at night. They are deep down inside his nasal passages, and using the nasal aspirator irritates them causing them to bleed a little. He has no other symptoms, so he cant' be sick. Any ideas on ways to prevent or a gentler way of extracting them?

I felt so bad for your baby that I almost forgot to answer. You can use a humidifier. It will help keep the air moist, and help baby breath better. Or, if baby doesn't like a bath yet, you can get in the tub with him and with warm water. The heat from the water can help soften the boogers in the nose, and keep it moist. If nothing else, you can try saline drops. Put them directly in the nose, and it will help keep the nostril moist.
