It is important to help your baby to clear his nose of mucous, so use a saline nasal spray such as Sterimar Children's twice daily.Once his nose is clear he will eat better.Also give him a medicine to help to clear the mucous from his chest such as Mucospect 2.5ml [half a medicine measure] twice daily.
