I can't get rid of my child's stuffy nose. I've tried everything. I read about puttin just saline in the nebulizer and it works wonders. He is almost 4 months.

Any advice to get rid of his stuffy nose. He's had for 2 weeks. Been to the dr. He gave me medicine which does not work. Not do a humidifier.

Have you tried a saline nasal spray? You can get it over the counter.

I've made my own the 1/2 teaspoon of salt with 8 oz of lukewarm water. It does help. But an hour later it's back.

I usually just lay my dd down and squirt a few drops in her nose. When she was a nb that's what the pedi did.
