Your baby is very young but has unfortunately caught a viral infection starting off with a cold and then affecting his chest. His chest illness is called bronchiolitis. This illness usually lasts for 10 days. He will clear the mucous from his chest by himself. The main thing you need to do is to keep his nose clear by using Salex nose drops twice daily and sucking the mucous out of his nose with a Nosefrida.He seems to be feeding reasonably well but it is his blocked nose which causes him some difficulty with feeding. Wash your hands well before and after touching your baby as this virus is very catchy.
