My 15 day old is congested and has green snot. Seems to be eating ok and sleeping ok. Should I be concerned?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: No

Most newborns have some nasal congestion.
And, as you said your child is acting and eating normally. You can use saline nasal spray and a nasal aspirator to help alleviate the congestion. However, i would only do that if your child is not feeding or sleeping well.
