My 4 week old is my 4th child, and his closest sibling in age is 3 so it's been a while since I had a newby and he is SO congested, in his nose and chest. I know this is remotely normal for new babies and to have him sleep inclined and use saline and all that. He spent a week in the NICU for a collapsed lung so I'm extremely sensitive about anything going on with him, has anyone had a similar situation where your child had a collapsed lung or respiratory issues and then have congestion later?
EDIT** He had a collapsed lung 12 hrs after birth, and was released from the NICU with a clean bill but has been congested ever since.
