My 10 month old has been congested since she was born. I don't know if this is related to allergy's or not. Her pediatrician says that it's just something that she has to out grow but I'm not so sure about that. She has a horrible wet cough, and sometimes dry, that is on and off. But he is constantly stopped up and sometimes at night she kind of gasps in her sleep and doesn't breathe all that well. She has has also had 3 or 4 ear infections. And she does seem to keep a runny nose, sometimes clear, sometimes green. I don't know if this will help, but when she was born, before she came out she inhaled her poop. I don't know if that has anything to do with this or not. I am just looking for a second opinion.
In a sense it is genetic since babies with small noses (and adults with small noses) tend to be subject to it. But I don't think it has to do with a faulty gene. Is "faulty" the correct term? Well, you know what I mean.
