Q.

funny breathing

hi Doc
my son is 3 moths old, he had a cold and blocked nose when he was 2 weeks old, it came back again at 6 weeks.Its been gone for a while but he breathes like he has a blocked nose when he is awake or feeding. All is ok when sleeping(breathes nomally).I used saline spray while it was blocked. He is on breastmilk and feeds every 4-6 hours. No temparature. Must i take him to the doctor?
Thank you in advance

It does seem as if your baby has a problem with a blocked nose, although it is unusual that he only is not troubled when he sleeps.He will benefit greatly if you continue to use the infant saline nasal spray at least twice a day.
