What can I do if my baby has congestion?

?age? 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.
Congestion. You can gently place a few drops of saline in the nostril and gently suck out the mucus with a bulb syringe and then repeat on the other side. A nurse from a pediatric office can show you how. A humidifier may also help.
