Does Your Newborn Have a Stuffy Nose? Advice from a Pediatrician

When your newborn has a stuffy nose or is congested, it can feel like a nightmare. They aren’t sleeping well. They aren’t eating well. They’re fussy.

And when your infant isn’t eating or sleeping, then that means that you probably aren’t either.

Don’t panic. 

We’ve teamed up with Dr. Katie, a mom, pediatrician and blogger at Forever Freckled, to share some helpful tips on reducing congestion in infants and newborns.

This information is not intended to be medical advice. If your infant is struggling with congestion, please consult with your pediatrician.

How to Reduce Congestion in Infants – Advice from Dr. Katie

Dr. Katie recommends using Boogie Drops® Saline Nose Drops to help alleviate congestion in infants.

Boogie Drops® Saline Nose Drops are specifically designed for infants age 0-2, featuring a specially designed tip for controlled dropping and easy dosage control.

The dropper is also a smaller size, making it easier to use with tiny noses. Learn more here.

Dr. Katie recommends using Boogie Drops® Saline Nose Drops and a snot sucker before feeding your infant and before bed.

As always, if you have questions or are worried about your infant, call your pediatrician.
