Luke (11 weeks) has been having persistent congestion in his sinuses at nighttime, after laying flat for awhile. I mentioned it to our nurse practitioner at our 2 mo well check last week and she said she thinks it's normal. It isn't a huge issue but it does affect his sleep...typically he'll have a long stretch of sleep first thing and then wake up a little congested and nurse, and then it gets worse and he's up every 1-2 hours because he wakes himself up with his snuffling.
It's in his sinuses; his nostrils are clear but it does drain some into his nostrils after he's been up and awake for awhile in the mornings.
I'm just paying closer attention to it now I think because I proactively cut dairy out of my diet when he was born (because my 2 other children both had sensitivities to dairy) and now I am considering adding dairy back in. Have just been thinking about whether the congestion could be a sign of a sensitivity to something else, most likely soy? I have a little soy milk with my morning coffee and soy yogurt a few times a week, plus as you know soy is a common ingredient in many other foods.
Just thought it could be helpful to see if any of you have experienced this with your babies and if you have any thoughts on it. Thanks!
