My infant's nose has a honking sound when she inhales. Is this congestion and do I need to use a nasal aspirator?

In brief: Probably
However i don't know enough to say for sure.

In brief: Swollen nasal mucosa
try a cool mist humidifier and saline nose drops.
too much use of an aspirator can cause more swelling but 1-2 times a day if you are getting secretions is fine
