My LO is 2 months. He is constantly having mucous in his nose and getting blocked all the time. The mucous dries up and I can hear his breathing. It makes breastfeeding or bottle feeding hard as he cannot breathe properly through his nose and his mouth is occupied. It gets very frustrating for him. I stopped nursing him using the side lying position cos it seemed that it is harder to breathe that way. I use the cradle hold but try to bring his head higher up.
What can I do? I can hear him breathing when he's asleep too. It's too far in for me to pick them out and I don't really like the idea of sticking cotton swabs in his nose all the time.
