My son is going through this phase these days. Daily after every two hours I put saline in his nose. This is very effective.. And the remedy of massaging his nose is new for me and I think is effective too.. So thanks ..

Wow! These are helpful tips indeed. Thanks for sharing this. It is a very common sickness among our babies and I hate stressing my baby's liver with OTC medicines.

Re: How do I clear a baby’s nose during a cold?

My doctor allergologist advised me to:

  • put saline solution (2-3drops)

  • pinch one nostril

  • do suctioning to suck the stuffed material on their nose.

This is done one nostril at a time.


This is my regular routine every time my kids has a cold.
