My 1 month old baby has a stuffy nose and wakes up a lot during the night because of it. What can I do to get rid of his stuffy nose?
Humidity: A humidifier will help, as will using saline drops right in the nose to loosen the mucous.

Putting it across the room doesn't do much good. ...Read more
My daugher who is 1 month old is having closed nose n cough, doubt if chest congestion.. while breathing can hear a different sound.

2 month old with wet cough for 3 days. She gets really bad coughing fits from time and has stuffy nose. Should I worry about a cold at that age?
Yes: A "cold" can be significant a this age. Young babies are nose only breathers, so make sure that you keep her passages clear by using saline drops, encourage extra clear fluids like pedialyte, elevate the head of the crib she sleeps. Check her temp and if over 101, see pediatrician right away. Observe for sleepiness, irritability, decreased appetite. See your pediatrician sooner rather than later. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
