Babies do have nose obstruction often till they grow to at least 1 year of age and suffer from it because,
1-They are nasal breathers unlike adults and get difficult to breathe during feeding because the mouth is closed at that time.
2 the nostrils are small and get blocked easily with secretions!
3- the Rhine nasal drop is only normal saline and not a medicine.Do not worry. But even this should not be used for a long time.
