In brief: Several options

Before six months of age, bulb syringe and saline good choice.
Also, cool mist humidifiers, especially at use during sleep may be helpful. After six months of age, I have prescribed zyrtec (cetirizine) with good results. Talk to your pediatrician for help in this regard.

In brief: Nasal Congestion

For infants we use bulb syringe to relieve nasal congestion by occasional suction of the secretion.
Sometimes saline drops helps.

In brief: Nasal wash

At 6mo the primary cause of congestion and cough is the environment.
House dust, fragrance, perfumes and cleaning products all leave scents that irritate a babies nose. A good nasal clean out with saline can remove much of this irritant load, but removing the offending irritants helps more in the long run.Air particle filters can also help.
