My daughter is 3 months & 3 weeks.. This morning she woke up to eat at around 2am and she was so congested she was having a hard time latching on.. I tried sucking her boogers but nothing came out.. She is still having difficulties.. And the mucus is making her cough... What could the doctors do to help??

there isn't anything they can really do for her but you can put a humidifier in her room

 Put some breastmilk up her nose. This can work wonders!

Try nursing her in the bathroom with the shower running if you don't have a humidifier.

It's best to let these things run their course,if possible.

Use a humidifier, going into the bathroom with the hot water shower running is great for a more intense blast to get things flowing.
Before suctioning her nose, use saline spray or even breastmilk. It'll loosen the congestion and make it come out easier.
Also, elevate the head of the bed so baby isn't laying flat.
