Brief Answer:
Continue with simply saline

Detailed Answer:
Hi
I understand your concerns but don't worry. Simply saline nasal drops are enough for baby's nasal congestion relief. You may use baby nasal aspirators for thick secretions. No need for any other medications if he doesn't have any fever, feeding difficulty and lethargy.
Get back to me if you have any further doubts/ clarifications.

Hopefully this will be of help.
Take care
