Funny breathing

I have a seven months baby boy who started to breath very funny on sound like his nose is blocked and his chest is making a grrrr grrr sound like.this situation disturbe him when he is breastfeeding cause he cannot breath probely by his nose.we even feel this grrr sound when we hold him especiallyon his back and chest. from tuesday i was giving him salex nose drops twice a day but he does not get any better please help.

And his temperature is normal and there is no mucus coming from his nose, other than that he sleeps well and eat well.

Thank you and keep up the good work.

This breathing sound is probably caused by a blocked nose. If there is no nasal discharge and Salex does not help then he probably has enlarged adenoids.It would be best to ask either your paediatrician or an ENT specialist to see your baby.
