Stuffy nose? What to do...

My LO is just over 2 weeks. When ever he falls asleep I notice he sounds all stuffy. I have used the aspirator to try and clear his nose out but it didn't work. I am afraid to leave the room when he is sleeping because what if he stops breathing. But when he is awake he sounds normal. Is this something I should call the pedi. about? What can I do to help?

If you breastfeed (or even still just have a bit of milk in there) squirt some up his nose. I know it sounds crazy/gross/too weird, lol. It works GREAT!

 My older son breathed funny as a newborn and nothing was wrong. It went away after a few weeks but I had trouble sleeping, worried the pedi missed something. I would mention it at his next check up.

That makes me feel a little better. Thank you and I will talk to him about it.
