Nose drops: I would use a Normal Saline nose drop which is over the counter (little noses, ayr nose drops, ocean nose drops)- it works best within 3 days- if your child is still having symptoms after 3 days, she should be checked by her pediatrician.

Several things: The first months are troubled by narrow nasal passages .Exposure to dust, fragrances, smoke & other irritants make it worse.Baby tries to flush these out of the nose with mucous but this often ends as congestion & produces rattling with breathing. The best rx is washing out the nose with saline & suctioning the remainder. Eliminate irritants from babies environment & this will happen less.

What can I give a 2 month old for stuffy nose?

Suctioning: Saline nasal drops and auctioning are all i would do. Babies have to breath through their nose so it is best to try to keep it clear. Sleeping in a car seat can also be helpful if it is affecting sleep. A humidifier can also help thin the mucous and allow it to drain.
