Olbas oil for small baby?

My little one is 5 weeks old and has a bit of a snuffle. He's feeding okay - just comes off the breast a bit but goes back on til he's full. It's just when he sleeps he is finding it a bit tough. I don't think we need saline nasal drops but wondered if anyone knew if a drop of Olbas oil at the end of a blanket say would be okay for him or is it just too strong? We've found it works well for our older one but obviously a newborn is a bit different.

No too strong. At that age you can only use saline drops I'm afraid

Thought it might be. If he's still a bit snuffy tomorrow I'll go the saline route. Thanks
