Thanks for the question.

It is fine to use it. It can help relieve the nasal congestion. Stop using it whenever the congestion gets relieved. And do not over use it - it may cause rebound congestion.

If congestion continues or baby seems breathless then you will have to consider a repeat clinical evaluation.

Hope this answers your question. Please feel free to ask if there are doubts.
