with ds, we didn't have one. i tried the bulb syringe, but literally nothing came out, ever. we just sort of had to muddle through. do the usual things, humidifier, steamy shower, etc. it helps to get things flowing and they'll breath easier. best is a steamy shower, followed by the nose frida. oh my word. so much snot in one tiny baby. but she was so happy afterwards and you could barely tell she had a cold the rest of that day it cleared her out so well
ITA! The nosefrieda, and saline, will clear it right out!
