Your baby is rather young for this operation. The ENT surgeon is probably concerned about your baby's symptoms being quite severe at present.Ask the surgeon if he would consider postponing the operation until your baby is 12 months old.You will need to rely on the specialist's judgement about the severity of your baby's nasal obstruction.
