In brief: 6m=irritant congestn
A 6m kid will respond to cigarette smoke, hair spray, cleaning fumes, perfume etc.
The same way you do except it is worse for them. The irritant quality often makes kids snooty & they have a hard time getting the stuff sneezed out since they have minimal sneezing power. Often these irritants stay weeks inside their nose unless you wash them out with saline.
