Would a homeopatic nasal spray be ok to use on a 3 month old baby's stuffy nose?

In brief: What is expected?

There is little scientific basis for homeopathic treatments.
It would be better to consult your pediatrician to determine why the baby has a stuffy nose and treat accordingly.

In brief: What's in it ??

The first months are troubled by narrow nasal passages & exposure to dust, fragrences, smoke & other irritants.
Baby tries to flush these out of the nose with mucous but this often ends as congestion & produces rattling with breathing. The best rx is washing out the nose with saline & suctioning the remainder. Eliminate irritants from babies environment & this will happen less.
