So my Son is 2 months old, he has been congested since me and my wife brought him home, We have tried everything from Little Noses sinus spray to bulbing and combinations of the pair. we recently got a Humidifier and some other stuff.

I could really use the help in figuring out how to free up my little mans sinuses and helping him breathe better through his nose.

All Advice is welcome.

Oh no! That is the worst! My daughter is now 2.5 and when she was around 6 months old we experienced her first cold. She had the same issues being congested. We tried everything. What I found that worked the best was boiling Vix. What we did was take a pot of water filled to about 3/4 of the way full...allow it to boil for about 5 minutes. Take about a tablespoon of Vix and put it in the boiling water. It will melt down. Turn heat down allow to simmer. I used to put the pot on her dresser with her bedroom door open. It definitely helped her out at night. When the pot of water cools down completely the vix will harden at the top to make it easier to clean.

I hope your little one feels better soon.
