Babies of this age need to have an open nose to be able to sleep properly.You have already tried using Salex nose drops to try to clear your baby's blocked nose. You can use Iliadin Infant Nose Drops twice daily for not longer than 5 days to try to open her nose more.Keep on with the Salex as well.
