I use Saline Nose Drop... You can also make your own by mixing a 1/2 tsp of salt per cup of water. and then just drop 1-2 drops of that into their nostil and then it should loosen it up.

My doctor told me not to use anything Vicks or any Vapour stuff at all. I heard it on the news as well.



 



Saline nose drops:  1/2 teaspoon of salt mixed with 1 cup of boiled, cooled water. Drop 1-2 drops in each nostril (I used a clean medicine dropper) . You can use these every 4 hours I was told. It clears my daughter right up. She just got over a cold. I also used a cool-mist humidifier in her room while she slept :)

Get the little noses infants drops and spray a little in each nostrile let the hard mucus get soft and then suck it out with the suction device...also put some baby vicks on the soles of the babies feet and put some socks on, and the vaporizer really works with the vapo steam that you pour into the vaporizer water.

the drug stores in Canada have saline drops for infants. It really helps move the blocked mucus so it seems to clear the sinus passages. I will warn you you need to administer them quick as they will wiggle and squirm. but soothe the heck out of them afterwards and they are ok with it. good luck.

The steam in bathroom idea really works. I also agree on using a vicks nightlight.

Lil noses drops worked wonders on mine and I got a Vicks Vapper humidifier it puts just a little vicks in the air with the steam and helps open them up.

my 6 month old baby is also stuffy, the best thing to do is take him in the bathroom, shut the door and run the bath to let the room get steamy. Keep baby it there bout 10 mins. Another thing is to put a bowl of water under or near the radiator in babys room when he sleeps, this keeps the air moist.
