Baby blocked nose

Hi all, baby, 2weeks old, has blocked nose when sleeping in air-con room. Used Sterimar and sucked out with nasal aspirator (lollababy and tollyjoy), but no mucus sucked out. Question: how long do you press on the Sterimar per application? I usually press it for 0.5-1s as I'm afraid too much water blow into his nose. The block nose seems to be affecting baby's sleep as he keeps waking up from the congestion. Any advices?

My baby will also have blocked nose or difficulty breathing when she sleeps at night in our air con room. But she learned to breathe through her mouth if she wakes up. Previously when she had flu, I would spray Sterimar and leave it on for a while then use a manual nasal spray to suck the mucus out. Will do it few times a day whether or not there’s mucus. I would also gently clean her nose using a cotton bud every morning. If all else fails, you can do doc and they will prescribe you with iliadin to be dropped into baby’s nose once at night.
