To clear nostril congestion, use, saline nasal drops specifically meant for babies. You can check with your doctor on exact name. Regular use of these drops will remove germs and keep the nostrils clean, Also check with doctor on how to use it and how often to use it. Regarding foods, as baby has congestion, offer more of fluids and soft easily digestible foods. Give small frequent feeds of milk , if baby is on breast milk then continue with it as this will help in baby recovering from infection and also fighting infection.Soft foods like khichadi, rice-dal mix, rava kheer, oats /ragi porridge or warm custard are all easily digestible foods. Give small feeds and feed baby in sitting or upright position.
