Your baby's nose

Due to anatomical and physiological features of the nasal cavity, such as immature nasal sinuses, large number of blood vessels, narrow and short nasal passages and friable mucosa, babies tend to have quite snuffy breathing from the first days of life.

What causes nasal congestion in babies?

  • inflammation (in case of common cold, hay fever, sinusitis, rhinitis, blocked nose, allergies etc;
  • environmental factors (dry air, particles such as debris, dust, pollen and other allergens).

Nasal congestion happens when the tissues inside the nose swell or produce mucus. A baby with a nasal congestion may snort when breathing and sound "stuffy". In the first day of life, newborns may sound like they have stuffy nose because in the womb they were surrounded by fluid. Sometimes they sneeze for the first couple of days as they try to get rid this leftover fluid in their nasal passages.

If your baby has nasal congestion, it can breath through the mouth, which can make it harder for them to feed. The nasal congestion can cause breathing problems and child restless.
