Hi everyone. We have an eight week old little guy who has been stuffed up for the past 3 weeks, but it is now getting worse. He hasn't slept at all today and can barely get much air past all of the mucus in his nose. We have been using the saline drops the past few days and I bought a humidifier this afternoon. Any suggestions on how to relieve his stuffiness?

3 weeks is a VERY long time for an eight week old to be stuffed up for! Or anyone for that matter! Have you talked to your doctor? It sounds like more than just a stuffy nose, they generally don't last that long...poor thing

You should consult your doctor before you use anything other than saline on a baby that young. They do make a Baby Vicks that helped me alot.

Do you breast feed ,I agree ,see teh doctor but there is an old midwives trick of rolling up a tissue and inserting it slightly in one nostril and GENTLY squirting some breast milk up bub's nostril,I have done this and it worked it made it possible to feed her! But see your doctor!!
