  • all of what PP said and there is also a mist saline spray you can get, it's basically water with a very tiny amount of 'salt' and it helps to clear it.

  • Steamy bathroom, little noses simply saline, johnson and johnson makes a vapor rub bubble bath that is soothing, also if the bulb isn't working as well check a drugstore they have a battery operated one much like what they would use in an E.R or doctors office. It worked well for my son

  • get the saline spray and use the Nosefrida The Snotsucker Nasal Aspirator to suck everything out. It works really well. My son hates anything that comes close to his nose, this is the only thing that works for him
