Hmm, at first I was going to say it's normal for some newborn babies to sound congested, from mucus, but I don't know about the little blood, I would defently call her dr. Good luck!

I would talk to the pedi asap...see if he would reccomend u see a allergy specialist
My dd had the boogers an it got so bad that we could let her sleep alone cause we were afraid she was goin to stop breathing..but it turned out she had asthma...but a lot of docs don't want to diagn it @ such an early age..
My neice also had a similar prob..she had abnoid prob but they didn't remove it til she was 3..

Just went to the dr for this. My dd is 8 month tomorrow and she got congested and she had blood coming out her nose. Even when she sneezed it came out. Dr said the membranes can become thinned and when u suck then the bulb can cause blood. She gave her some med so it doesn't turn worse.

I would call the pedi just in case. I don't remember if my daughter was stuffy after delivery. You could also try a humidifier, or if you don't have one take the baby in the bathroom with you while the shower is on so it gets all steamy in the room that might help her congestion a little too.

You can use saline spray. That loosens everything so that the boogies just run out! I use Little noses brand.

I agree, use a humidifier (cool air not warm air) and maybe saline spray to keep her nose moist. The bulb syringe is most likely causing the little bit of blood when you suction her nose. Are you using the big syringe given to you from the hospital? If so that is what causes the bleeding, from what the PP mentioned. Try using a smaller syringe.
