In brief: Suction the nose

Use saline nasal drops and suction the nostrils.
This can be done few times a day but not too frequently as it may irritate the nostrils.

In brief: Depends

If your baby has nasal discharge and he/she is not bothered by it and sleeping and eating fine, i would not do anything.
If it's bothering them a little, you can suction their noses, use saline drops/sprays, elevate their heads, and use a humidifier or vaporizer. If it persists more then 2-3 weeks without improving, i would call your pediatrician since it could be a sinus infection or allergies.
