Hi Tanishq! It is advisable to use saline water to clear nose. U cud take lukewarm water and add a pinch of salt. using a dropper put one drop in each nostril. but please check the temperature of water on ur palm beforehand. If the baby sneezes it will take out all phlegm stuck in nose. It is advisable to do this process just before feeding d child. also while feeding keep the head up by providing support with hand. as the nose is clogged child faces difficulty in breathing while feeding. so he/she avoids taking milk. these steps would help the child feel comfortable. Also please visit a pediatrician for advise regarding medication. U cud also serve milk using spoon or a dropper. please ensure u keep d head up n feed few drops only at a time. Hope this helps! Wish u speedy recovery of ur child!

Hi Tanishq, while you can check with the doctor for some safe cold medicines and nasal/saline washes for such a small baby, you could also try giving him steam. These days humidifiers are available in the market that you can use; or go the traditional way. Hold a sleeping baby in your lap; put a steamer near your legs (ensuring the baby is at a safe distance from it); and cover yourself and the baby with a sheet trapping all the hot steam inside it. Even a few breathfuls are enough for the small baby; this is known to release phelgm, open the nasal passage and provide relief. Hope he gets better soon.
