bugers are just dried mucus. it is the color of the mucus you need to be concerned with. Usually clear or white mucus is fine but yellow or green means there is an infections and needs medical care. I wouldn't worry about the bugers except when he is old enough to eat them, ugh, and it comes, LOL.

thanks Jina,always helps to know all these things.
My daughter, she started 2weeks ago with 2day of fever. the 3rd day she had congested nose, and up to now she had. the colour its white,or transparent, and i use NOSE FRIDA, really helps..we tried it all, and nothings sucked as good as NOSE FRIDA.
my only worry that i had, is that even though i take out, i can still hear while she breathing, that there is something in the "pipe",but nothing will come out.
Should i worry?

Clear and white are ok. It is when the mucus comes out yellow, thick, and green you need to get him to the dr. Also watch for a fever which also means there is an infection. In the spring, most of the mucus is caused from allergies to pollen.

I think that is fine. My son is 3 months and his are sometimes white as well, usually if he has been stopped up a little and I'm pretty sure it's from the formula when they are eating. The only mucus color that is "bad" is lime green which is a sign of infection. But I've never heard of any color boogers being anything to worry about.

Clear and white are usually just the body getting the cold out. If they have any yellow or green tints that needs meds from the doctor. In my opinion... But of course you have to watch for coughing, fevers, and other stuff. But just white snot should be fine.

Green means inection....he is fine. I am a Nurse and Mother of 3. Green is always the bad color whether it comes from the nose, a cough or the poop. Hope this helps.
