Okay great! Thank you ladies for responding. That is a big help. I have the saline nasal spray. This is my first winter baby my first two were summer babies so I am not used to dealing with this with a newborn. Thanks a bunch!

I have a 1 week old and the ped suggested baby saline drops - they work really well - and I just put in one drop per nostril! Also, make sure you have a humidifier in the bedroom at night...

WE had trouble with congestion pretty early one... before 2 mo. The Dr suggested using saline nasal drops (not medicated). I buy baby ayre because it has a narrow top and easier to put in her nostril. Then we suck it out with a nasal asperater...the bulb with a tip that gets a little wider to seal up close to nose. We do this anytime there is any congestion at all. She HATES it, but it is so worth the battle. A minute or two struggle, but then she can eat and sleep so much better afterwards. The Dr said that plain saline drops are safe to use as often as needed. Also if you cannot use the bulb to suck out the nose, then just use the drops... the drops only still help to thin mucous and get stuff flowing.

Good luck!

Hi everyone,
Has anyone experienced this. My two month old sounds congested. I breastfeed so I took some garlic and my baby girl had a lot of mucous come out. but she is still conjested. At what age is it okay to use the saline nasal spray? Any feedback would be appreciated.
