HEAVY BLOCKE NOSE Girl 31,5 mnths, boy 21,5 mnths

My little ones both have heavy blocked nsoes, worse at night. No fever, no cough. Have tried Salex solution, Otrivin nasal spray, use humidifier at night with karvol...doesn t seem to be helping much. What else can I do ?
Also my son wieghs 14,5 kg now - is this ok for his age? (was prem at birth)

The average weight for a boy of 21 months is 11.5kg so your little son's weight is really excellent.Your children have failed to respond to the usual treatments for a blocked nose. They both may have enlarged adenoids. It would be best to take them to be seen by an ENT specialist.
