Should I be worried

My baby is 3 weeks old and is having running nose and white mucus discharge. It happens especially at night

Where is the mucus coming from? White is okay, yellow or green you should go to doctor. Get a humidifier and put some Vicks in there, it helps.

It's coming from the nose. But isn't Vicks too strong for such an age
You could use just plain water.  Make sure to keep the humidifier super clean, you do not want to give the baby molds and mildews to breathe.  I would also keep an eye on anything in the environment that might make the baby allergic.  Pets, molds, pollens, exposure to grasses, etc.

My baby is only one week and going through the same thing. The doc said if it is clear it is ok just sanction it.
