  • sayline (sorry spelling) drops up the nose then after about a minute suck out with booger sucker.. They have the infant drops at stores or you could visit your doctor and they will give you some...
    My 6 month old is in the same boat with the stuffy and booger infested nose, he has a cold..
    It is just that time of year...
    Try a humidifier, it helps too..
    Good luck

  • Saline, and then use a nasal aspirator, sometimes i will run the shower so it gets steamy in the bathroom and take my little one in this tends to loosen up the mucus

  • my 4 month old just got over a bad cold.... we put vicks under his nose and on his chest after using the drops.. he was able to breathe alot easier when he ate.
