Not recommended: Follow the directions on the package. Not recommended for use for children under 2 yrs of age. You should be using just plain saline and the bulb suction to clear your infants nasal passages. Discuss with your pediatrician if your infant is having congestion difficulties.

I never recommend these under 3-5.
