question about runny noses?

My lil one is almost 9 months and for about the last 2 weeks now she's had, I wanna say a nasal drip? When she breathes I can hear it like in the back of her throat, and shes having a hard time breathing at night, and occasionally it will run out her nostrills, and ive ben using the humidifer and the nose suckign thing, but its been like this for 2 weeks, should I call the doctor? I feel kind of silly calling for a runny nose.

    my lo was the same and i called the doctor 1st, he recommended i bring him in just in case it was an ear infection or anything like that. I would take her to the docs as they can do a quick check and put your mind at rest. My lo was just a cold and i was recommended to use a nasal aspirator, nasal drops and take him into the bathroom with a steamy shower running as the steam helps clear the passages and try rub a bit of baby vapor rub on her chest before she sleeps that helped my LO loads. All the best!

    Could be seasonal allergies though. Not sure if they can give anything to a 9 month old for that. I think you've waited 2 weeks, and it would be fine to get it checked out to be sure. If you called after 2 days of a runny nose, then I'd say that was a little silly.

    My 5 month old had a runny nose for 2 months! Doctor just kept telling me doing the same things you're all ready doing. But ya call the doctor if you feel the need too. I did, makes me feel less worried.
