Babies are exclusively nose breathers ie they cannot  breathe though the mouth . We all have experienced more  nasal block when we have cold when we lie down and are more comfortable while sitting upright. Individuals above the age of 1 to 1.5 urs can easily breathe thru mouth specially when there is a nasal block. Keep ur baby upright or in reclining position on ur shoulders. U can continue Maxtra drops and Saline nasal drops.

27 day male child .Apart from nasal saline drops. Check with feeding posture . Correct position and burning after each feed is important Improper feeding position during feeding may be lead to swallowing of air along with milk. This swallowed air will cause problems and child will have discomfort which is expressed by child by different behaviours. When this swallowed air return back to mouth and nose it may bring milk along with it.
