My 6 week old has the same problem.I asked his pedi and he told me i can use saline drops.They make them for babies.I bought a brand called little noses.

Get a nasal asperator, its one of those tear drop like things they use at the hospital, but use it gently. Then you can use either a tissue or q-tip (only at the end of the nose dont stick it in too far) to get what comes out.



Also get either mints or some cough drops and suck on them, blow it gently towards his face. The mints are all natural but you can get non-medicated cough drops, it works wonders and you dont have to worry about giving meds.



Most of the meds arent recommended for young kids anymore that would be appropriate for a stuffed nose.
