Need something to help cut mucus out in chest for infant?

I agree with the above replies, but I have another suggestion that my pediatrician said was okay to do. when you put the baby to sleep, don't put them in their crib. put them in their infant car seat (strapped in as if in the car) & make sure their little head is propped up by elevating the car seat just like it's in the vehicle. When you as an adult are stuffy, we want to prop up our stuffy nose when we're trying to sleep. It works for the little kiddos too. hope this helps. you can also use a nasal syringe to help gently suction out any mucous in their noses.

Bring baby into the bathroom, in its carrier while you take a steamy hot shower. Make sure doors and windows are closed. You want to generate lots of steam, just breathing the steam should help. Also invest in a humidifier for night time.
Moisture seems to help more than anything else.
