In brief: Phlegmatic baby

Consider if the child has nasal mucous that is dripping, use a flexible bulb syringe to clean the nose.
Other options include avoiding dairy products as they tend to change the consistency of the mucous. Finally if your child is old enough you could try Loratadine for allergies.
