Congestion may give your baby a blocked nose, noisy breathing, or mild trouble feeding.
Mild congestion is common and not much concern for babies. Babies sometimes need extra help to clear congestion because their airways are so tiny. Your care will focus on clearing any mucus from your baby’s blocked nose and keeping them comfortable.
You can relieve a baby's congestion using a rubber suction bulb to remove excess mucus and administering nasal saline drops.
