Nasal wash: At 2mo the primary cause of congestion is the environment. House dust, fragrance, perfumes, cleaning products all leave scents that may not bother you but irritate a babies nose. A good nasal clean out with saline can remove much of this irritant load, but removing the offending irritants from babies life helps more in the long run. Air particle filters can also help.

Dress it after. ...Read more
