Snuffly snorty baby

Ds is 9 weeks and has pretty much had a cold since about 2 weeks old. It doesn't really seem to bother him, but when he breathes - particularly when he wakes at night - he snorts really loudly, a bit like Daddy Pig(!) which doesn't sound quite right. I'm wondering if its something like his adenoids, should I worry do you think?

My ds was like this for ages but has settled now. We used nasal drops. Which helped us also was told by hv to steam him in bathroom. We did all of this which seemed to help. Have you tried these methods?

I've been a bit slack and not really done anything as it wasnt worrying him too much, it suddenly struck me that it's been lingering for some time though!! Will try steam and nasal drops, thank you.

It's not a cold, my midwife called it the sniffles and said babies get it on and off. As long as it's not affecting his sleep then no need to do anything, just ride it out!

My DS has had this on and off since birth (he's 9 weeks). It doesn't bother him so we've done nothing. (We called the midwife the day he came home from hospital and they said not to worry.) However when he was still in our room it kept me awake so it bothered me!
