Is it normal for a newborn to have a stuffy nose and boogers?? My two week old has had them since he was a week old. I used the nasal bulb and saw that his booger was green (TMI) and I've heard that could be a sign of sickness but he doesn't act sick at all. Any advice? He's usually stuffy at night.
I don't know about the green booger meaning sickness but how often do you use the bulb? If you use it to much you can actually be causing the stuffiness! Do you have animals? My lo was stuffy for a bit to along as he's sneezing I would say your fine and he will just sneeze them out!
I've heard it's actually impossible for them to be too stuffy to nurse because for the first while, they're exclusive nose breathers... So they wouldn't have the relex if their nose is stuffed to open their mouth.
I just use tweezers when I see something
My LO was stuffy when he was little but he had colds. I never used anything to get it out other than saline drops if it was really really bad. I put a towel under the top of his mattress to elevate it a little and just had to let it sort itself out. I've never heard of the green meaning illness but if you're worried I would go and see your GP to make sure x
My LO had this at about 4 weeks. I think she might have had a little cold. I asked the doctor about the green and she said it is nothing to worry about. She said to just use a cold air humidifier and saline drops. She said just to call if she started having labored breathing, etc. But the sneezing and green boogers were nothing serious.
It actually is totally normal. Your child was just in a completely "aquatic" environment for 9 months. Sneezing and boogers are normal. However, excessive snot, coughing or fever is not. So trust your mama instincts.
