My daughter Eleanor has had a stuffy nose for a couple of weeks now and it's not getting any better. Anything I can do it make it easier to breathe threw her nose? thanks!

 Try little noses.  It works pretty good. 

Also, eucylptus oil on a cotton ball somewhere in her room will loosen her up.

My 3 1/2 month old just had a stuffy nose for awhile :( I used saline spray and a booger sucker very morning and had the humidifier going as much as I could.

 Watch your booger sucker...they can get moldy up in there.

Best thing to so squirt some breast milk up her nose will make her sneeze and clear it all up... Also bugger suckers aren't good for them as it can make there veins pop in there noses causing nose bleeds so be careful ;-)

The saline spray makes him sneeze and the boogers get stuck on the end of his nose so I just use it there.

After he gets over a cold I throw it out and buy a new one if he starts getting stuffy again.

Thanks for the advice everyone! I've just been using the nose sucker and it doesn't really seem to make much of a difference except getting a weird reaction out of her and boogies half hanging out of her nose lol i get paid tomorrow so i'll make sure to get that nasal saline spray and a vaporizor if i can afford it..
