Q.

BLOCKED NOSTRILS

My baby is 16 weeks & is suffering from blocked nostrils especially in the early hours of the morning. Her peaditrician prescribed nasal drops which only help for a moment and said we must use it when needed. How many time can I use it in one night? Do I use it before she sleeps or only when she feels blocked?

Thank you

It is not safe to use any presciption nose drops in excessive doses in young infants. The only safe drops to use are infant saline nose drops which you can use as often as needed.
