Re check!: If your infant is still congested-have your pediatrician evaluate to determine if congestion is from stuffy nose or from the lungs-wheezing-"bronchiolitis" cough. This evaluation will determine what to try for "comfort" care. Often times, the congestion takes 1-2 weeks after your event with IV antibiotics to subside.
