first of all it is necessary to understand that mucus is produced by the walls of a person's respiratory tract, to become a trap for dirt or germs that are around, so as not to enter the airway deeper. However, if the amount is excessive, it can cause discomfort such as groaning, stuffy nose, or a runny nose. The culprit of this problem usually lies in a person's allergic mechanism, in this case it is in your baby, where the allergy can be triggered by conditions around such as unclean air content, respiratory infections, air that is too cold, and so on. In addition to excess mucus, babies tend to experience sneezing when there is too much mucus.
To prevent this from happening, of course, the baby's environment must be adjusted, for example by setting the room temperature more suitable for the baby, cleaning the baby's bed regularly, and finding out the cause of the baby's allergies and keeping it away. Mucus from the nose can be removed by first diluting it using a saline solution that can be purchased at pharmacies as a baby's nasal cleaning fluid. Once the mucus appears runny, you can use a nasal suction, which can be purchased at a baby supply store, to help clear your baby's nose. If the condition does not improve, do not hesitate to check with a doctor. Here we attach an article about colds in babies. Hope it is useful.
