Our expert says:
The nasal passages in babies are narrow and block easily. Babies also don't know how to mouth breath, so when their nose blocks, they can become very distressed. A simple saline (salt water) dropper will help to soften up mucus. Increasing indoor humidity with a Humidifier will also help. The condition always settles with age. Lactose Intolerance will cause diarrhoea and excess wind and colic, but will not block the nose.
