Get a nose sucker(not the bulb) and saline solution. It works wonders.

Saline drops. If you don't have any there is a recipe for it online. And go into your bathroom, turn the water on hot close the door let it fill up with steam AMD hang out for a bit. It helps loosen everything up.

I always used to take DS into the bathroom with me when I showered. Set him in his bouncer/carseat on the floor, and let the bathroom steam up a lot. Always worked for us.

This. Use saline nasal spray to help break up the congestion and then suck it out with a bulb syringe (I like those best). I snagged a couple from the hospital because theirs are way better than any they sell in the store :D

THIS! and little noses tablets, they really do help. I just heard that vicks isn't good for them anymore, it's a lung irritant, although we all grew up on it! Mine has been sick twice and it's awful, throws him all off his schedule of sleeping and I end up rocking him most of the night just to keep him elevated so it doesn't drain down the back of his throat and choke him till he's awake and coughing. But the saline and the tablets worked wonders. He's 10 months old and the Pediatrician and the Pharmacist both said he could have Benadryl to dry up his nose, 5 ml, but I only gave him 2.5 ml on the nights when it was the worst and it couldn't breath or sleep at all. it worked wonders
