1 doctor agrees

In brief: Time to change

The baby is likely to remain congested, have more respiratory & ear infections, & be at higher risk of crib death in such a setting.
If possible you should look for other accommodations or just accept this is unlikely to improve.In a few years as babies airways/nose grows larger it will have less effect, but will always have some.
