Johnson & Johnson make a vapor bath, I give my daughter a bath with this, use the snot sucker to clear as much out as I can, use vapor rub on her chest and feet (then put her socks on) and put her to bed with her humidifier. Also, we put a blanket under her matress while she sleeps elevating her head and allowing her to drain. Doing all of these things before bed truly does make her a 100 times better the next day. I know it sounds like a lot to do but it is a 20 minute routine that really helps my daughter. I have never tried the drops, I will next time though. Good luck!

My eldest is 13 and my youngest is 10. honestly over the years, with both of them with constant stuffy, runny noses, albuterol puffers and nebulizers, to over the counter medication, tonsils removed and perscriptions I have FINALLY realised they were not going to out grow allergies. If you baby does not out grow the blocked nose, looke into dust mite allergens. humidifiers are temperary but do not resolve. Really look into bed casings, especailly fo older mattresses and blankets.

They say to put the saline up his nose and suck it out. The kids hate it, but sometimes it works. My son is 4 wks old and he's sound like he still have some fluid left in him from birth. I tried sucking it out, and I get nothing. so I put the saline up his nose and it makes it a little better for him to breath.

With my son we had other issues but the main one was the constant runny nose. Finely when he was about 4 mo old his ped. decided he was allergic to milk. When we changed his formula and cut out all other milk products his nose was fine. You might want to ask his ped. if it might be an allergy.

Try a cool mist humidifier and saline drops to suck out the mucus. They sell them in pharmacies and grocery stores in the baby ailse next to shampoo and lotions and stuff. My daughter unfortunantly inherited our bad sinuses and gets stuffed up often. If he's weezing at all or you have a history of asthma in your family, your doctor can perscribe a medicine that unblocks the bronchial tubes for easier breathing.

I had the same problem with my little one since her birth.  I got the advice of using Vics vapo rub on her chest and back, and then some under her feet - and then to put socks on!  It really works.  I had a similar problem at the same time and also put some under my feet with socks on - what a difference.  Otherwise my sister let me borrow her humidifier - just put some eucalyptus oil in there at night - it clears up the sinusses.  And yes, try the saline solution also - available at all stores and pharmacies.  My baby's nose has since cleared up, so good luck!

Talk to your ped about getting some nose drops to clear it out. basicly it is just salt water but it is supposed to cut through all of that and loosen everything up. I never found the nasel asperator to do any good. But maybe I wasn't doing it right.
