Child is congested, difficulty breathing, watery eyes, discharge from eyes

My two month old sounds extremely congested, there is nothing to suck out of his nose . I find him taking deep breaths after pausing for a short second. His behavior is normal, his temperature was 99.1. I am getting over having the flu so I m hoping he didn t get it but worries he is. His eyes are watery and goopy. I can t sleep because I m constantly checking him. What do I do

Pediatrician, Neonatology 's  Response
As he is a very small baby,in the symptoms described by you,you Ave to make him to the odor or examing his chest and see what is needed!
It may be the same virus from you but still small kids behave differently.Extremes of age make him more susceptible for pneumonia,bronchiolitis,etc.
Take care

Pediatrician Dr. Synthyia Bhagat's  Response
Thanks for your query.
Nose block.cough and watery eyes are part of viral illness and takes some days to settle.
I suggest you to ;
-put saline drops in both nostrils 4 to 5 times a day.
-Gently clean his eyes with sterile water 2 to 3 times
-use humidifier in room .
-Decongestant drops can be used as per dosage .

In case his symptoms do not get better get him examined by pediatrician for proper management.
Wishing your baby good health
God bless.
