4 months old baby

Question: Can babies have constant nasal congestion for over 1.5 months. My pediatrician said she is doing good, I dint see any issue. Just give steam n saline drops. But every morning my baby struggles with congestion n becomes ok only after steam. How long will this continue. Some ppl say its because of milk. Is it so, has any one else experienced this. It's not cold because she won't have it throughout the day.

Answer: Its always good to take a second opinion from another pediatrician. Some babies will have this continously and after a period of time will stop by itself.

Question: My baby is 2 months n 28 days old, he has been suffering from coughing late night regularly since last 50 days. Have seen doctor, and as per doctor it will go by time and prescribed asthalin for 7 days n we followed him and it still didn't go. Have blood test and x-ray done a which came out everything normal. But I am worried because it makes him awake n made cry. Don't know what do for this prolonged wet cough. Sometimes, it goes with the nasal drop, which lasts for only one or two hour. Any suggestion would be great. Note: have started using nebulizer at home ( with normal saline), again it's not working.
Answer: Dear my daughter also suffered with this so firstly before sleeping give steam to baby and then apply some baby vicks on baby's chest, neck and back and then raise baby's head with 1 bid pillow and make him sleep on sitting position that will prevent cough in baby..
